Downtown Flagstaff.

If you're on the road, you may have noticed more and more traffic in the mornings.

Gone are the days of open highways like at the beginning of the pandemic — one positive of coronavirus.

But with increased traffic comes aggressive driving — and some downright rude driving.

Phoenix drivers are known to be pretty bad, at least anecdotally, but did you know we’re not the worst in the state?

Turns out Flagstaff is home to Arizona’s rudest drivers.

Auto insurance company Insurify collected data from more than 4 million drivers across the country, noting bad driving habits like failing to yield, tailgating and street racing.

For Flagstaff, the good news is that they’re nowhere near as bad as the drivers in California. Three Golden State cities make up the top of the list of rudest drivers.
