    Default Which state has the dumbest drivers?

    Test scores are in: Northeast still has dumbest drivers
    Insurance company exam indicates one in 11 drivers would fail state licensing exam.
    May 26, 2006; Posted: 3:00 p.m. EDT (1900 GMT)

    NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) - The tiny state of Rhode Island still ranks rock bottom in terms of driving knowledge, according to a national test conducted by GMAC Insurance. Oregon drivers answered the most questions correctly.

    The test revealed that about one in 11 licensed drivers in the United States would fail a state drivers test, according to GMAC Insurance.

    Rhode Island ranked last year, also, with an average score of 77. Last year, Oregon's average score was 89, which still placed at the top of the rankings that year.

    Based on average scores, northwestern states generally ranked highest while the bottom-ranking states were mostly in the northeast. One exception was Vermont, which ranked third. Washington state drivers ranked second. Drivers in New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts and the District of Columbia ranked at the bottom, with D.C. finishing just ahead of Rhode Island.

    The 20-question test was based on questions asked in state driver's license examinations. A score of 70 or higher is required to pass a standard state test.

    The failure rate for drivers in northeastern states was about 16 percent, according to GMAC Insurance. The failure rate for drivers in northwestern states was from one to seven percent.

    The test and an accompanying survey were completed by 5,288 licensed drivers including at least 100 from each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia. The survey asked about responses to specific driving situations.

    (Cheat alert: The following paragraph includes some answers to the test.)

    Approximately one in three drivers said they usually do not stop for pedestrians in crosswalks. At least one out of five drivers did not know that pedestrians in a crosswalk have the right of way. At least one in five also did not know that roads are most slippery when it first starts to rain after a dry spell.


    Link to article, with each state breakdown and the actual test itself: http://www.cnn.com/2006/AUTOS/05/26/...tes/index.html

    I got a 90% on the test.

    The state of intoxication, to answer your question.
    "Suck a fat one, faggot."
    -MikeL, showing off that sharp wit of his.

    "You may recognize some of these chemicals. Let's start with cyanide...The one the Aum Shinrikyo cult attempted to use to commit mass murder in a Tokyo subway in May 1995...The same cyanide produced routinely--1.4 million tons per year--for use in the production of plastics, adhesives, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and so on. It seems that those who put small amounts of cyanide in subways are terrorists. But those who produce it in mass quantities and contaminate broad reaches of soil, water, and air, killing countless living beings, are not terrorists, but rather capitalists, and are counted among the finest and most powerful people on the planet."

    Funny this is mentioned. I just watched a show last night about the world's worst drivers. Man there's some real loons out there on the highways and byways.

    I'm actually surprised they could narrow it down to one state. I think they're everywhere.

    I'd say the people of Wyoming have the dumbest drivers. No joke.

    Hands down most stupid drivers are in S. Florida. I found it interesting that the research was taken from liscensed drivers. Here in S. Florida, a valid DL seems only optional. Insurance? Wow, that would be nice too. Even the cops are extemely poor examples for drivers. Rudest drivers are here as well. Please everyone, get off the goddamn phone and pay attention to the road!!!!!

    For cities, I'll bet Tulsa, Ok. is up there on the list. What a cluster fuck that place is!

    Louisiana, especially New Orleans comes to mind. I think they are actually a little crazier than the dumb ones. You have to be careful at stop signs. If you stop, you may get rear ended, if you don't, you might get run over.

    The drivers here in my beloved Cali are dumb enough when it's dry. Throw a little water on the streets overnight and you'd think someone removed their goddamned batteries.

    Proud to say I am a Masshole and we have the worst drivers out there! Actually we are fine at driving, it is everyone else who has no clue what they are doing on the road.
