(CNN) — We know it’s a couple of months away, but set yourself a calendar reminder:
Stay off the road at 6 p.m. on Fridays in August.
That’s when the number of road rage incidents in America goes through our sun-baked, stuck-in-traffic SUV roofs.
August was the worst, followed by July.
Now, granted, an analysis of Insta posts hardly a scientific study makes. (You’d want to take into account other factors). But still, it’s a pretty interesting snapshot.
For instance, it’s no surprise that when temperatures rise, tempers flare — especially when you’re trying to get home to get your drink on and you’re having to dodge all those vacationers and their campers cramping your commute.
As far as a specific city goes, Los Angeles rages the worst. No surprise there: People practically live in their cars in the city of (traffic) lights. New York is second, and coming in at No. 3: Mt. Pleasant, North Carolina. Talk about a misnomer!
But what really threw us for a loop is another finding in the study — the state where motorists are most aggravated: Hawaii.
Yes, Hawaii. The peaceful paradise, the vacation dream spot, the idyllic honeymoon destination.
The center logged 5,872 posts per 100,000 drivers in Hawaii. That’s even more than California.
