Roadside assistance service AutoVantage has released the results of its 2014 In the Driver’s Seat Road Rage Survey, naming Atlanta second for the least courteous drivers in the nation. Houston was number one, while Baltimore ranked third.

For the second time in five years, Portland has been identified as the city with the most courteous drivers. Pittsburgh retained its spot in the top five, moving from fifth place to second, and St. Louis placed third overall for courteous drivers in 2014.

The 2014 In the Driver’s Seat Road Rage Survey measured behavior, observation and attitudes related to “road rage” as reported in America’s biggest cities, and provides an update to previous research completed in 2009.

Here’s a little  driving music to soothe – or enrage – you while you prepare to tackle the Downtown Connector or Perimeter this evening.
