Oh, so these scores go like golf does? I was about to say...NY and MASS drivers are smart!? ;)

No, but seriously, I've been there and seen how they drive. :puke:

I'm surprised to see Georgia is 29th. Now granted, I'm basing my argument on my experience driving in Atlanta, but they are a bunch of 'holes!!!

California drivers are worse than Indiana drivers IMHO. At least Bay Area drivers are worse than Indianapolis drivers. On some days my commute used to make me think I wasn't born with enough middle fingers but I've stopped wishing for extra digits; figure it'd make playin' guitar hard and I'd have to devise a new typing system as well. Too much trouble being a genetic freak methinks.

Why isn't Arizona near the bottom? We have so many old people here in this state it would be a natural fit at the bottom of that list.

My everyday drive to work and home is the 1 hour of my day that I would rather just have a sumo wrestler take a big drippy crap on.

Indy is much too low at #14. :shakehead :rant:

I'm amazed that Montana is all the way down at #9. Didn't they pretty much eliminate the speed limit there?
