We're Number 1! If you don't know what I'm talking about, take a drive along the Palmetto, idle on the dolphin while people use exit lanes as strategic advancement lanes, or try to cross any intersection when your light turns green...
"Miami motorists said they saw other drivers slam on their brakes, run red lights and talk on cell phones, according to AutoVantage, a Connecticut-based automobile membership club offering travel services and roadside assistance."
Let's not forget: One finger salutes, driving on the shoulders in heavy traffic, illegal u-turns, cutting off, total disregard for traffic laws, pedestrians, traffic signals, or anything else which attempts to hamper "progress," nanny-nanny Boo-Boo Faces, drag racing...am I missing anything?

Don't forget about TWDs - Texting While Driving.

Also, it is the people that are rude, not the drivers!

Checked out your comments, left one of my own...

Apparently you missed the deliberate sarcasm...Read carefully before jumping to conclusions, this certainly isn't a laughing matter for us here at TransitMiami.com

...and laying on the horn the second the traffic light turns green so as to scare the driver of the first car into the intersection making sure that it gets side-smashed by the 3 cars still running the red light.

How about running people off the road because they INSIST on being in the lane that you're currently in. This happens to me more often then I care to discuss.

I think Florida drivers in general are rude, not just those in Miami or South Florida. Driving in Gainesville was scarier than Miami.

We also have a number of drivers that have suspended licenses, so many people getting DUI's, and people with no insurance.
