New problem in Cleveland: We need to be angrier on the road


Woo-hoo! We made another list! AutoVantage just released its “In the Driver’s Seat Road Rage Survey,” and Cleveland checks in at No. 19 on the tally of the nation’s most rude drivers. While it’s not a bad showing, we were nonetheless beat by drivers in Sacramento – where they don’t own cars; they just levitate -- and Houston. Are Texans even capable of stringing enough words together to deliver a proper insult? To improve our standing next year, we’re our part by cutting off someone on I-90 during our drive home this afternoon. So let’s all repeat in unison: “Get outta the way, asshole!” --Michael Gallucci
