Arizona has the Most Aggressive Drivers in U.S.
Two of Arizona’s cities, Phoenix and Tucson, have been named as the leading cities with the most aggressive drivers in the U.S.
The findings were reported in a studyconducted by Automatic, a San Francisco-based connected car company.
Automatic concluded that drivers in Phoenix had the highest levels of aggression on both highways and city roads. Tucson ranked second in the nation for city road aggression.
Automatic collected its data by creating an “acceleration profile” of each driver in its user base. Each driver’s “acceleration profile” was created based on his or her level of acceleration and how often the brakes were applied during a selected period of time.
AAA Study Reveals Aggressive Driving is a Common Concern
A 2016 study conducted by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety revealed that national opinion for the aggressive driving is a widespread concern.
The study included a survey of U.S. drivers and found that nearly two in three participants believe the problem of aggressive driving has increased in the past three years, while nine out of ten drivers believe road rage poses a threat to their safety.
Interestingly, 78 percent of those surveyed also admitted to engaging in road rage activities in the past year. These activities may include:
- Brake checking other drivers
- Swerving in and out of traffic
- Changing lanes without signaling
- Blocking cars that are attempting to pass or change lanes
These activities and many others can lead to serious accidents that cause injuries or even death.
How Arizona is Addressing the Challenge
The Arizona Department of Public Safety (DPS) has recognized the problem and has taken steps to reduce road rage and dangerous driving behaviors by employing tactics, such as “bait cars” to target aggressive drivers.
The DPS has also created “safety corridors” on sections of Valley freeways that enforce a zero-tolerance policy on speeding and aggressive driving.
Aggressive driving in Arizona has created a widespread danger to public safety and can cause severe accidents that result in victims being injured or killed.

My review is for Kathy Hudson a legal assistant at the law firm. She is great! She is very professional and a fair based person. She was never rude to me and always called me back. She listened to me and had my best interest as number 1. Mr Nasir who is a supervisor at law firm also was very professional and helpful. Not sure if spelling his name correctly but sorry if not. As far as mr Ross and the lady that runs the front desk reception I would say they are the most unprofessional and rude people I have met at a law firm in my life especially beings they were representing me. But Kathy made it overall a better experience. Thx Kathy.
My paralegal , Caroline , was on top of her game - very responsive and always answered any questions I had and in a timely manner . My attorney Rob ,was the best attorney I ever had . He explained everything in great detail and had a great sense or humor . He really knows how to bring light To tough , unfortunate situations - I would absolutely recommend them at anyone -
Liz Gonzales was great!!!!
The lawyers here are of top quality. Especially Trey Dayes, who was always respectful and hard-working.
They knew exactly how to explain the case to me in a way that I would understand it. They gave me hope that my life wasn’t over.
I would have no hesitation at all recommending Phillips Law Group. In particular, Juan Roque has impressed me with his professionalism, his integrity and his heart for the community!
I didn’t know anything about the area, and Phillips Law Group just took care of everything. They helped made sure I knew where I was going, made sure I didn’t have to worry. They literally just took care of me.
Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value As someone who is familiar with the inner workings of the auto insurance industry I can whole heartedly endorse Steven J. Jones and Phillips law group as someone I would want on my side should litigation take place. They handled my case professionally, honestly, and with satisfactory results which I would not have expected without enlisting their help.
Liz was great
