Bad Drivers

The other day CNN/Money ran an article about a survey conducted by GMAC Insurance "to gauge the driving knowledge and practices of the American driving public." It was found that drivers in the Northeast scored the worst. I first heard about this survey on Headline News after coming back from Boston. I realize that this one trip probably isn't enough to make a judgment, but when it comes to Boston I think the survey has to be onto something. Maybe it's the horrendously poor layout of the city streets, maybe it's the sheer number of people, or maybe those folks just don't care. I don't know, but it was an experience. (For what it's worth, the rest of the Northeast — at least on the highways/turnpikes — was fine.)
