Some podunk research comes out about driver rudeness, and everybody’s up in arms about it, blogs, the national news, you name it. Finally, Larry Lebowitz has taken the time to poke holes all through the study. It’s shoddy. Update: Another interesting tidbit: the survey got the rankings basically by asking people in each city if they thought the drivers in their city were more or less courteous then in other cities. In other words, the study shows that Miami drivers think they the rudest.

Do I believe the Florida Legislature needs to pass a law that increases moving-violation fines and points for slowpokes who lollygag in the far left passing lanes? You bet your ass I do. But more importantly, I think police forces across the state need to re-prioritize which offenses actually get enforced: start pulling over people who don’t use their turn-signals for a change. And by the way, no, you’re not allowed to change lanes without signaling.
