New Yorkers Again Named Worst Drivers
Thursday, May 27, 2010
For the third year in a row, New Yorkers are the worst drivers in the country. That's according to an annual nationwide test given by GMAC Insurance.
The test polled over 5,000 drivers around the country with questions from state Department of Motor Vehicles exams. The national average for the test was just over 76 percent; below 70 is considered failing. New York drivers scored an average of 70 percent and New Jersey did little better, with an average of 70.5.
Nearly 20 percent of drivers nationwide would fail a written driving test and may be "unfit for roads," according to the survey.
But you're safest in Kansas, which came in first with an average score of just over 82 percent.
