Texting and Driving Infuriates Drivers Most: Survey

What type of drivers aggravates you the most while on the road?

According to a recent survey conducted by Expedia.com, the texter is the most infuriating driver, ahead of the tailgater and the multi-tasker. The 2014 Road Rage Report was conducted on Expedia’s behalf by Northstar and surveyed 1,001 adult Americans to determine the behaviors that are most likely to elicit road rage.

And despite the fact that texters were the most infuriating driver on the road, 55 percent of Americans admitted to using their mobile phones while behind the wheel.
