PHILADELPHIA - NOVEMBER 24: Traffic flows through an entrance to the Pennsylvania Turnpike, whose union is on strike, November 24, 2004 in Willow Grove, Pennsylvania. The toll workers have been without a contract since September 2003. Turnpike officials said there will be no toll today, but they will charge a flat fee starting tomorrow for use of the Pennsylvania turnpike. This means a free ride for the estimated 650,000 vehiclesusing the turnpike the day before Thanksgiving. (Photo by William Thomas Cain/Getty Images)

A new survey shows that Pennsylvania drivers are among the rudest in the nation.

The survey was done as part of our summer driving awareness campaign called  Drive Human. They are reminding drivers that they share the road with other people not faceless cars. By promote courteous driving they are hoping for safer and less stressful roads this summer.

Pennsylvania scored in the bottom 10 coming in at #42.

But, there is some good news – Pennsylvanians scored really well in incidents involving tailgating and aggression. [Full Results]
