If you’ve been driving around Colorado lately thinking to yourself, “man, people sure seem angry around here,” you’re probably not alone!

A recent survey by Forbes Advisor determined that Colorado is one of the worst states in the country for road rage, thanks to our state’s confrontational drivers.

The site says this about drivers in Colorado;

Centennial State drivers were the third most likely in the nation to say they were followed by another driver who proceeded to exit their vehicle to yell at or fight with them (14%).

Drivers in this state tie with Alabama, Connecticut and Washington as the fourth most likely to report being insulted or threatened by other drivers (46%). And more than half of survey respondents (52%) reported witnessing other drivers making rude or offensive gestures.

When it comes to road rage-related injuries, Colorado is nearly tied with Missouri. A quarter (25%) of Centennial State drivers report they know of someone who sustained injuries after a road rage incident.

Utah (1st) and Missouri (2nd) were the two states that ranked higher than us in the study.

See all the results here.
