Americans have weighed in on the most infuriating types of drivers in the United States. Plus, find out which city is home to the nation's rudest drivers.

If you text while you’re behind the wheel of a car, you’re not only putting yourself and others on the road at risk, you’re also making other drivers really mad.

For the third year in a row, texting drivers were rated the most infuriating motorists on the road. That’s according to the Road Rage report, an annual survey of driving etiquette released by travel website Expedia.

The report comes ahead of the Memorial Day weekend, when more than 30 million Americans are expected to hit the road.

In addition to texting, the driving etiquette survey revealed that tailgating and cutting off other motorists are the other two of the top three most annoying driving behaviors.

“Many of us have been guilty of these behaviors behind the wheel — it’s easier to notice poor driving when it isn’t you,” John Morrey, vice president and general manager of, said in a press release. “But Memorial Day will put many millions of drivers in close proximity, and it’s important to be particularly sensitive to one another. The same is true on a plane, in a hotel, anywhere — consideration for your fellow traveler helps everyone.”

According to the report – which is based on a survey of more than 1,000 American drivers – these are the 10 most infuriating kinds of drivers in the United States:

  1. The texter
  2. The tailgater
  3. The last-minute line cutter
  4. The left-lane hog
  5. The crawler
  6. The multitasker
  7. The swerver
  8. The speeder
  9. The drifter
  10. The honker

Just under half of Americans (43 percent) think New York City drivers have the worst road rage, making the Big Apple the least courteous driving city in the United States. Los Angeles and Chicago were also identified as having some of the rudest drivers.
