New Study: BMW owners are the rudest drivers in America

You will always find fools on the roads. I’m probably not the only one who regularly shakes their head in frustration while looking at someone acting stupid behind the wheel.

Sometimes you can’t help but wonder why it’s so difficult to behave like a decent human being for some drivers.

The question now is: who drives the worst?

A new survey from Insurify determined that people who drive BMW cars are the worst drivers, reports Motor1.

Top 10 worst drivers’ brands

Insurify, a car insurance comparison website, compared over 2.5 million insurance applications from its database to determine the worst drivers based on past accidents and moving violations, along with the make and model of their cars.

The Top 10 are:

  1. BMW 4 Series
  2. BMW 7 Series
  3. Audi
  4. Subaru WRX
  5. Toyota Celica
  6. Acura TLX
  7. Acura ILX
  8. Hyundai Veloster
  9. Honda Element
  10. Audi A4

Rude people prefer sports cars

Prices differ significantly between the cars on this list. However, most have one thing in common, rude drivers tend to prefer sports cars.

While the average sedan in America has about 120 horsepower, the ten cars with the rudest drivers have a 230 hp average.

Perhaps the extra horsepower gives these drivers a dangerous sense of entitlement on the roads — conversely, aggressive drivers may seek out cars with more powerful engines.

When it comes to gender, another study found out that men are 10 percent more likely to get caught speeding – even though they consider themselves to be significantly more skilled drivers than women.

How rude are American drivers?

Across all car brands and models, 23.1 in every 1,000 drivers have one or more citations for a driving infraction categorized as “rude.”

To compare with the top rudest drivers, 58.9 per 1,000 BMW 4 Series owners have citations qualified as rude.

Over 2 times the national average. And taking both top spots off our top list, BMW drivers are definitely someone to be wary of while on the road.

If you see a BMW driving around, you should probably watch out!
