Many of us have thought it, but this study serves as confirmation: Virginia has the rudest drivers.

Insurify had a team of data scientists examine the driving history of over 2 million insurance applications to determine which drivers in the U.S. had the rudest habits.

Rude driving infractions were categorized as "failure to yield violations (failure to yield the right of way, failure to yield to a pedestrian), failure to stop violations (failure to stop for a red light, school bus, or stop sign), improper backing, passing where prohibited, tailgating, street racing, and hit-and-runs," according to the study.

Virginia was ranked as number one out of the top ten states with the rudest drivers. 

Drivers in Virginia are 64 percent more likely to engage in rude driving behavior on average than any other state, according to the study.

The state has drivers known for high rates of tailgating, hit-and-runs  and failure to yeild the right of way.

Idaho, Wyoming, New York, Georgia, Ohio, Delaware, Iowa, Hawaii, and Wisconsin were also named in the top 10 states with the rudest drivers.
