A recent survey ranked Texas in the top 10 of most polite drivers in the country.

According to Forbes Advisor, the Lone Star State was ranked the 6th state with the least aggressive drivers in the nation. The survey used 10 key metrics from a survey given to 5,000 drivers across the nation to identify which state drivers are the most aggressive.
