Every week, Austin finds itself in the top spot on another nationwide list. Whether it’s the country’s hottest labor market, No. 1 metro area for growth over the last decade, or the best place to live for three years in a row, there’s hardly an economic top 10 list that Austin doesn’t crack.

People do crazy things behind the wheel. We all know this. You probably saw something today that you thought was nuts. But what's the worst thing you can do, at least as far as your insurance company is concerned? What's the driving violation that'll drive your insurance rates up the most?
