Study Finds Connecticut Drivers As Some of the Worst in the U.S.
A new survey just released found that Connecticut and Massachusetts have the worst drivers in the United States.
The survey is called The Allstate America's Best Driver's Report and New England drivers apparently need some driving lessons. Two hundred cities from across the country were ranked according to the average years between collisions and relative collision likelihood compared to the national average. The cities surveyed had populations of 50,000 or more.
The following cities had the best drivers according to the survey:
- Brownsville, Texas
- Kansas City, Kansas
- Madison, Wisconsin
- Cape Coral, Florida
- Boise, Idaho
- Huntsville, Alabama
- Port St. Lucie, Florida
- Wichita, Kansas
- Olathe, Kansas
- Reno Nevada
Correct me if I'm wrong, but it appears that the safest drivers live in sections of the country where life moves at about 10 mph, or where the average age of the drivers is 68-years-old. Where are people in going in Cape Coral, FL, except out to dinner at 4pm? Here in New England, in the Boston, New Haven and Bridgeport, areas we've got places to get to fast -- no time for turn signals or speed limits. We're all very important, so checking text messages while we cruise at 85mph is a must.
The following are the nearby cities with the worst drivers:
185. Bridgeport, CT - First Connecticut city on the list
190. New Haven, CT
191. San Francisco, California
192. Philadelphia, PA
193. Los Angeles, California
194. Providence, R.I
196. Springfield, Mass.
199. Worcester, Mass.
200. Boston, Mass. - Worst drivers in the U.S
There's nothing like getting the finger on I-84 or I-95 in Connecticut when you're only trying to obey the 65mph speed limit.
