Sheepshead Bay Drivers Most Likely To…

We’re not really sure why a marketing company wanted the study — but Yahoo News reports that in a study commissioned by the Affinion Group it was found that New York drivers are the most aggressive.

The article states that New Yorkers take the prize for being the “angriest, most aggressive drivers who tailgate, speed, honk their horns, overreact and lose their tempers.”

The article quotes  Affinion Group’s Michael Bush, who said that “New Yorkers were most likely to wave their fists or arms. They were most likely to lay on the horn and they were most likely to make some sort of obscene gesture.”

Last week, this SUV was caught driving onto the Sheepshead Bay Road sidewalk to drop off a passenger. Apparently, we’ll need to add “Drive on the Sidewalk and Curb” to that list of what aggressive New York drivers are most likely to do.

And while they’re at it, might as well add that NYC pedestrians are the “Most likely to Run For Their Lives”.

UPDATE: Since we posted this photo this morning, we have received a picture from one of our readers who took this picture of a car on East 15 Street parked in front of the Sheepshead Bay train station Wall Mural. It brings the driver’s point home even better: “If you don’t like my driving, get off the sidewalk.”
