Default Bad Drivers: Where do you rank?

Worst Driving Ranked by State

I would agree that NYC drivers are pretty bad and that Connecticut drivers are not much better... During a given week I probably cheat death 3 or 4 times on I-95 in CT from New Haven to Norwalk and back because so many drivers just don't seem to pay attention

EDIT: Bad link, stupid yahoo news.... Better details below

Where does your state come in?

Hey CN, you ever see a red mustang on your commute with tinted windows?? That was my commute the past two years until my wife and I moved into our place in Hamden 3 weeks ago.

I was lucky though. I got on at Long Wharf (missing the merge), and I work in Bridgeport (off at exit 29, just before the mess). All in all, I couldn't complain, considering I came up here from LI, AKA parking lot.

Horrible I guess. So much so that the PC Magazines Editor don't even mention us.

The only issues I have here is that no-one understands that "on coming drivers yield to highway traffic". I can't even begin to tell you how many birds I have seen or how many times I have been mimed at because I didn't slow down to let in a merger.

Then there are the drivers that can't be bothered to slow down and change lanes into the grand canyon sized gap behind me. Noooooooo! You fapper got to speed up and plug the Min-Cooper sized hole in FRONT of me with your f**king Winnebago!

Oh and then theres also the.......

Besides that, Oklahomans are tame drivers considering that HALF OF THEM ARE MORONS!

I think that is what makes this place worse. NYC, LA, DALLAS, Malaysia, etc.... you expect horrible ettiquette. Here, they blindside you and it's YOUR fault.

The Worst Drivers in the U.S. Live in... - U.S. News Rankings and Reviews

I think this is the same thing for those of us getting a bad link.

Doesn't suprise me in the least bit to see Hawaii at the bottom of that list. I lived there for 4 years. Red lights don't mean much, people have no idea what to do when traffic signals are out, and big problems with late night racing. I think people are frustrated because there are tons of cars and nowhere to go.

The fact that Nebraska ranks #3 comes as no surprise to me. There are only 12 people in this town that know how to use a indicator light and red lights are considered more of a guideline.

MISSOURI!

Personally I have never been in an accident of any sort. And I have only had a few minor speeding tickets, which is very rare. Hopefully it stays that way now that I have said it.

The lower numbers are the better drivers. Maybe the rest of Nebraska is safer. That might be because the rest of the state only has 12 people.

Oh, had the backwards.

Maybe the balance of people that DON'T live in Omaha is what gives the state it's good rating. It's hard to run red lights on a tractor in the middle of the prairie.
