Yesterday, a study done by [AutoVantage] was released naming New York City as the [second worst city for road rage](http://www.wcbs880.com/pages/458543.php?contentType=4&contentId=501464) in the country.  While we aren’t as busy or angry as Miami, where drivers are most likely to be found [putting on makeup](http://www.prnewswire.com/mnr/affinion/27862/) behind the wheel, we are most likely to cut over without notice. The only real shocker here is that we’re worse than Boston, where reckless drivers actually speed up and [try to hit police officers](http://www.bpdnews.com/2007/05/daily_incidents_for_may_14_200_1.html)! In the survey, road rage was defined as, “Angry or upset drivers, including out-of-control drivers and drivers who lose their temper,” and, “Bad or aggressive driving, including bad/careless/crazy and/or rude driving, cutting into lanes, cutting people off, tailgating, speeding and/or honking.” Who, us? We’re not sure how [Bloomberg’s congestion charge](http://www.motoring.co.za/index.php?fSectionId=928&fArticleId=3797883) will affect road ragers, but the words “rage” and “charge” usually go hand in hand.
