Survey says Arizona has most confrontational drivers in nation

So if you think Arizona motorists are inconsiderate, you’re not alone.

A nationwide survey of 10,000 licensed drivers done by Forbes Advisor found Arizona has the most “confrontational drivers’’ in the nation.

How bad is it?

The new report found that more than one in five of the 200 Arizona motorists questioned reported they have been forced off the road. That’s second only to Illinois.

But that’s just part of the reason that Forbes Advisor rated Arizona the worst.

More than 56% of drivers here said that other motorists blocked them from changing lanes. And 51% said they had been cut off on purpose.

And a whopping 81% said they had been yelled at, insulted or threatened.

For many Arizonans, it didn’t stop there: Nearly one in three Arizonans said that another driver actually has gotten out of his or her vehicle to yell at or even fight with them.

Nationwide, Forbes Advisor said one of the top reasons cited for feeling road rage was heavy traffic, a factor cited by nearly 40% of those questioned.

But other elements also enter into it — and can combine.

More than 28% said they already were feeling stressed, with a third saying they were running late.

And starting out angry even before getting behind the wheel was cited by close to 33% of those who said they were guilty of road rage themselves.

Where motorists are located also plays a role.
