Study finds Nevada among states with most aggressive drivers

Study finds Nevada among states with most aggressive drivers

Aggressive driving includes habits such as speeding, rapid acceleration and braking.

California topped the list followed by CT. The rest of the top 10 featured other metropolitan-heavy cities, like first-place California, fourth-place Texas and 10th-place Arizona.

GasBuddy says aggressive driving can lead to more trips to the pump.

"With gas prices expected to continue to rise well into the summer months, simply being aware of how you drive can dramatically lower fuel costs, prevent damages to your vehicle, and make the roads safer for everyone". Those include states with open roads and little congestion: Wyoming, ranked 46th with 17.9 minutes between events and an average speed of 55 miles per hour, and South Dakota, at No. 47 with 19.2 minutes between events and an average speed of 52 miles per hour.


The study claims those aggressive habits are also costing Californians cold hard cash.

The GasBuddy survey analyzed trips taken using its app.

Pennsylvania was ranked at No. 16 in the study, with an aggressive driving event occurring once every 9.7 minutes.

GasBuddy.com predicts national gas prices could hit $3 per gallon soon.
