The U.S. News & World Report released a state-by-state study on America’s Worst Drivers.
Florida ranked 43rd. While Idaho ranked #1, New Jersey bowed out as last year’s worst, making way for New York. GMAC Insurance’s 2009 National Drivers Test tested 5,000 drivers in each state, evaluating their basic knowledge of driving laws. Alarmingly, over 20% of America’s drivers could not pass the written driver’s test. That’s about 41 million drivers from sea to shining sea who don’t know the meaning of a yellow light or how to calculate a safe following distance.
The study shows a direct correlation between increasing age and improved test scores. In other words, there’s a reason why your teenager’s insurance premiums are through the roof.
How will you do? Take the test to see if you will fare better than your fellow drivers.
