This was on the Yahoo! homepage the most recent time I pulled it up, and thought you all might find it interesting. We all love to raise hell about stupid drivers and this shows us how justified we are. Georgia is ranked 47 out of 51 (they counted Washington D.C. separately) states. No wonder I can barely drive through town without cussing at someone...

Notice immigrant and "ethnic" high locations seem to not do very well in this poll.

I noticed nobody obeyed the speed limits in Chicago. It says 55mph, even the far right lane was doing 75, people in the far left lane were doing 80-90mph. I was doing 65mph on lakeshore drive and still gettting passed left and right.

I avoided rush hour, but I noticed people weren't nearly as aggressive as they were in Manhattan. If I had to drive in NY, I think I'd go with a 2wd(good for garage clearence), reg cab Chevy truck done up mad max style with huge steel bumpers with big spikes sticking out of them.

Whoo hoo! We're in a four-way tie for #8!

We're #8! We're #8. Well, along with Wyoming, Iowa and Minnesota.

I'm not. If Chicago should be 52nd, NYC should be listed with an asterisk, and a blurb at the bottom explaining that all the surveys were returned with profanities too terrible to try and interpret.
