Do not visit this city, to avoid the rudest drivers in Illinois.

Experiencing Rude Drivers In Illinois

I spend quite a bit of time in my car. I take road trips into Chicago and the suburbs all the time. My mother lives there. Plus, I enjoy going to games, concerts, and events. In fact, I just made two trips in over the weekend. I went to Riot Fest on Friday and the Chicago Bears game on Sunday. I ran to plenty of rude drivers.


I have driven all over the state of Illinois. Besides Chicago, everyone else seems pretty calm when it comes to hitting the road. Of course, you will run into the jerks everywhere, but for me, the top city of rude drivers has to be the Windy City. People just do not care. The only thing on their mind is arriving at their destination as fast as possible.
