Florida Drivers Rank High in Aggression and Distraction

textingAs a South Florida driver, do you constantly find yourself dealing with aggressive drivers? It’s not unusual to be cut off by someone, have someone tailgate you because you’re driving too slow, or intentionally accelerating to prevent you from changing or merging into a lane despite having your turning signals on.

If Florida seems like it’s a tad too aggressive, your observations aren’t off. A popular app called GasBuddy recently assessed the driving habits of users across the country that choose to use its “Trips” feature which evaluates trips to improve fuel efficiency while also noting when the driver speeds, accelerates rapidly, or brakes hard. While Florida didn’t earn the dubious distinction of being number one, it still managed to crack the top ten, coming in at number eight.

Another report by the app Drivemode (https://www.cheatsheet.com/culture/the-states-where-you-really-run-a-risk-from-distracted-drivers.html/?a=viewall) ranks Florida in third place when it comes to the most distracted drivers which, when combined with its aggressive drivers, only reinforces the importance of keeping your eyes on the road and wearing your seatbelt.
