BAKERSFIELD Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) — Travel site Expedia.com has released its 2014 Road Rage Report. It says texting and tailgating are the driving habits most likely to cause road rage.

Expedia surveyed more than 1,000 motorists, and 69 percent said those who text behind the wheel are the most rude and even dangerous in traffic.

No. 2 on the list is tailgating at 60 percent. Multitaskers, drifters and slow pokes round out the top five.

While many motorists admitted to being flipped off (69 percent) only a few (17 percent) said they let their road rage out by flipping off fellow drivers.

According to Expedia, other annoying traits included the left-lane hog, the speeder, the inconsiderate, the honker and the red-light racer.
