How's Your Driving?
Who are America's worst drivers? According to GMAC Insurance, it's the fine folks in Rhode Island, closely followed by Massachusetts and New Jersey drivers.
One out of five drivers from New Jersey and other states in the northeastern United States failed a two-part test. GMAC estimated that about one of 10 drivers nationwide would fail a written driver's test. Oregon drivers were regarded as the most knowledgeable.
Wisconsin drivers rank 8th in the nation, and not surprisingly, to me at least, our friendly FIBS (Illinois natives) rank near the back of the pack for their driving knowledge.
Silly surveys like this don't prove anything, of course, but it's nice to your opinions reinforced.

|Not surprising to see Louisiana ranked so low. I saw a bumper sticker that pretty well summed up people's attitudes around here: "Turn signals are for sissies!" |

|No. No. This test is rigged.
All those Rhode Island drivers were Jersey drivers who had their licenses revoked.
And when they got enough cereal box tops to send in, they ordered Rhode Island licenses. To fool Jersey cops.
