Can we just take a second and talk about sending a care package full of Honolulu Chill Pills to Arizona? If we all chip in, as a country, I think we can really do some good in The Grand Canyon State.
Phoenicians are the most aggressive on highways and city roads, and Tucsonites are making a strong case in second place on city streets. We think if Tucson had more highways, they might claim a spot in that top three, too.
How did we figure out which drivers were most aggressive?
Across our huge and geographically diverse user base we collect a ton of metrics for drivers in cities around the US. To define aggression, we take a look at the “acceleration profile” of each driver. To build a profile, we consider all times a driver accelerates or brakes over a period of time. We don’t just look at the hard events, which is when a driver slams their foot on the gas or the brake. We don’t consider speed, just how drivers change their speed.
