New Jersey is safer than New York? Thats bullshit if I ever heard it.

Jersey people cant drive to save their lives. Not saying YOU Jersey people specific, but Im sure you have been there, done that with asshats that shouldn't be behind the wheel. Case in point, I-80 merged a lane going to the GWB. So what did everyone do? just move over. Didn't check their mirrors, nothing. The result? 20 cars going every which direction trying to avoid each other.

The M roadster that I was playing around with, and I, both sat back and watched what almost turned out to be a 20 car pileup.

Then we resumed our fun

I'm not really buying it

but then again i'm not big an the whole "best"/"worst" thing
----how can anyone rate the driving skill of an entire city????------

btw do these stats include taxi drivers because it doesnt seem like they realize that THERE ARE other cars on the road.

Must have been penned by some tool in the N.E. Good drivers??? NY, NJ? WTF?

Wait wait... based on fatal crashes and crashes caused by High Speed....

Well Duh, People stuck in traffic all day have a heck of a time getting involved in high speed crashes.

IMO...JERSEY people are the craziest, grouchiest, and pushiest drivers ever. I went there for vacation for about a month...holy shit. I always see people screaming at each other, tailgating, not yielding, being total dumbasses.

It goes with the people though =P Most of them have really bad attitudes!

sorry theres no way in hell new york and new jersey have the best drivers in the country

they probably did something stupid like compare the number of accidents to the total population (of which most commute otherways)

edit "The key factors in deciding the rankings include the total number of fatal accidents and fatal crashes caused by speeding."

who gets paid to come up with a stupid ass analysis like this? you have to be a total fucking moron to think thats conclusive
