We all know we’re taking our lives into our hands when we get behind the wheel, because there are just so many bad drivers on the road. Aggressive driving habits like speeding, rapid acceleration and braking can be a danger to a lot of folks, and in some areas of the country it’s way worse than others.
GasBuddy has just come out with their list of the states with the most aggressive drivers, noting that these folks waste gas and lower their gas mileage by as much as 40% which can be quite costly.
