States With The Worse Drivers
Cruising along I-80 in Pennsylvania, I glance in my rear view mirror to see an aggressive driver barreling down on me. "I bet that car is from New Jersey," I tell my son.
Sure enough, as the guy flies by me like I'm standing still, I see the car does have a Jersey plate on it.
"See," I comment, "New Jersey has the worse drivers in the nation."
"Either New Jersey or New York," he responded. "I think New York drivers may even be worse than those in New Jersey."
How perceptive he is!
Last year's GMAC ratings of the states with the worse drivers did name Jersey motorists the most dangerous behind the wheel. But this year's list - which has just been released - says the worse drivers are in New York. New Jersey is now only second in the dubious listing.
Oh, and if you're looking for safe, courteous drivers, you need only go to Idaho or Wisconsin, which tied for best.
