There are some crazy drivers out on these Michigan roads.

Insurify compiled a list of the rudest cities with the rudest drivers in each state.

"To determine the rudest cities in the nation, Insurify’s data scientists used the company’s proprietary data to calculate the share of drivers with one or more rude violations on their driving record in 513 U.S. cities. Cities with the highest share of drivers with these violations in each state made the list as the city with the rudest drivers for its respective state. Insurify excluded states with insufficient municipal data — Iowa, Maine, Montana, New Hampshire, South Dakota, Vermont, and Wyoming."

Can you guess what Michigan city was picked?

What Is Considered A Rude Driver?


Insurify defines a rude driver in a very practical way.

"The truth is, rude drivers aren’t just self-centered — they’re dangerous. Insurify’s analysis of driver behavior defines rude drivers as those who have one or more of the following traffic infractions on record:

  • Failure-to-yield violations
  • Failure-to-stop violations
  • Improper backing
  • Passing where prohibited
  • Tailgating
  • Street racing
  • Hit-and-run"

Which City Has The Rudest Drivers In Michigan?

Occupations with the Rudest Drivers

The city with the rudest drivers in the state of Michigan is Clinton Township.

"This northern suburb of Detroit has a population of just under 100,000 residents. Clinton Township doesn’t deserve a bad rap because 2.33% of drivers couldn’t keep their cool. The suburb also has beautiful parks and a popular shopping center."


According to this study, the percentage of drivers with a violation on their record is 2.33%, which is 67% higher than the state average.

With only a little under 100,000, that is an insane percentage.
