Originally, I was going to have this poll ask which state had the worse drivers - Kansas or Iowa? But I realized that dipshittery on the roadways is by no means confined to those two states.

So, what say you, Planet? Which state that you have been in most makes you want to full on road rage? Poll on the way.....

My original take of Kansas and Iowa was based on this -

Kansas - the drivers putt along until you go to pass them. As you get even with them, they speed up while giving you the "What's your problem" look until they get past you. Three minutes later, rinse and repeat. Kansas drivers also will pace you, no matter which lane they are in. You can be going 75 or 55, and a Kansas driver will stay right on your hip. BONUS - the stretch of I-35 between Lamar and 151st street house possibly the largest number of braindead numbnuts to ever, EVER crawl behind a wheel.

Iowa - Iowanians (the people, not the poster, necessarily) drive along like they're coming back from brunch at the church, always. When you are finally able to get around one, they smile and give you that oblivious "Hi neighbor!" look, not realizing that they have backed traffic up for a mile or two singing traveling songs with the kids.

I haven't driven much in Florida, and the old person theory seems sound, but based on my experience Texas is the worst, other than west Texas. You have this weird combination of a culture of breakneck speed combined with heavy truck traffic, pickups that don't secure their loads, rednecks who think Texans are superheroes, and illegal aliens who drive beat-up cars below the speed limit because they're afraid of getting stopped. I'm not a fan of driving in Texas.

And I'd disagree about California's voting. It's not pleasant driving since it's so congested, but the drivers there tend to be very polite from what I've seen, and I drive there pretty regularly. I think everyone knows that one wreck means delays for 10,000 people, and everyone is sympathetic about trying to cross six lanes to get to an exit since they all have to do it.

Like I said, not fun, but polite.

Texas is nuts from the times I've been, yes. However, I can respect somewhat that at least they drive FAST as shit, since here in Tulsa...it's really slow goin. Yet somehow almost as dangerous. Odd I know.

I did some research many years ago that showed that slow drivers are more annoying than fast drivers. This surprises me since I think fast drivers are inherently more dangerous.

My theory is that the typical driver is closer in speed to a fast driver than a slow driver, and fast drivers are less likely to impede them whereas slow drivers do so by definition.

The problem here is, the slow drivers drive slow because A) they're retarded or B) they're on their phone or whatever. This becomes dangerous because they are just deathly road blocks for the normal/fast speed drivers. Since they're slow AND not paying attention.

Yeah, I generally think fast drivers aren't oblivious to what they're doing... they're comfortable driving fast and they generally pay attention to everything around them. OTOH, there's a larger percentage of slow drivers who poke along and are completely oblivious to what they're doing. They don't have the mindset of faster drivers, because then they'd be thinking about someone else. They are the people who drive 5 under the speed limit in the fast lane and then hit their brakes when you get a little too close for their comfort, or spend 4 minutes passing a semi. They're more dangerous than someone driving 5-10mph over.

The best, IMO...
Michigan (Detroit, specifically) -- enjoyed the 70mph within city limits... people generally drive about 10 over that and they really know what they're doing.

Atlanta -- I've only driven through, but again, they drive fast and seem like they know what they're doing.


The worst, IMO...
Iowa -- doesn't help that BFE highway speed limits used to be like 60mph.

Omaha -- Slow and pretty oblivious.

Kansas City (MO and KS) -- I swear the threat of rain slows down traffic. I'll be on a 65mph section of I35 going 58 in the fast lane one minute, then a few minutes later get passed by people going 65 in a 55mph section of I29, just to pass those people when it goes to 65mph... if we want to ignore speed limits, can we all just go 80? And of course, no one knows what a fast lane is or what it might be used for... :facepalm:

The absolute, unequivocal worst is Florida. My mom lived in Sarasota, and west Florida is full of people who, quite literally, have NO reservations about dying. Gotta turn out of a parking lot onto a 55 mph highway? No problem, just go. Why look?

I consider Kansas City "sneaky dangerous". I've found that people in this city are TOO considerate and cause dangerous situations by being overly polite. I've seen people STOP in the middle of the street to allow a left-turning car to make the turn while the opposing traffic is light. It's incredible. Just obey the traffic laws and the situations work themselves out. You don't have to aggressively be the most polite person on the road.

The most aggressive drivers I've seen are either in Nashville or Detroit, with the Philly/B'more metroplex close behind. Nashville speed limits are really just suggestions, while Detroit seems to have outlawed lane markings, and Philadelphians (Schuylkill expressway..) just make their own lanes if traffic is heavy enough.

But nothing- NOTHING- equals Florida, which is just a mind**** experience. I think it has a lot to do with political lobbying making license renewal the easiest ****ing thing ever. Too many people in Florida have no business driving, but are continually allowed to do so, in order that politicians can be reelected.

The only reason Maryland isn't ranking much higher in this poll is because most of the people here, I'm guessing, have never been there.

I grew up in Maryland, and just recently moved to Indianapolis. Drivers here are soft, marshmallowy, mewling-kitten types by comparison. People change one lane at a time, turn from the correct arrow, slow down before turning into a parking lot, and sometimes even stop at stop signs. It's unearthly.

The entire DC and Baltimore areas are overdeveloped and neither has enough infrastructure. Washington is the worst traffic in the country except for New York City; the two Maryland counties that border it are either horrifically crime-ridden (Prince George's) or full of people who are in an eternal rush to do anything and get anywhere (Montgomery). Also, the construction never ends.

In the snow, people abandon - yes, abandon - their cars en masse.

It's really no contest.

:thumb:

I don't get all the California/Texas voting,I've driven practically everywhere and at least those states "know" how to drive i.e. if traffic is going 85 you keep up and IF you need to get over simply turn on your signal and begin to merge but DO NOT begin to ride your break like the numbnuts in Kansas.

I think the poll results are completely relative, to where people live. I have been to 46 of the 50 states, but most of the time, I'm here in MT. With that being said, most of the out of state people that drive through here, are from WY, ND, ID and WA.

WY: Because we have no sales tax, we get a shit load of people driving up here from WY, to shop. Most of them do well on the highway, but when some of them hit Billings, Mr. brain shuts down. Seriously, 15 in a 35? Really? You're holding things up pud whacker, either use the gas, or get the **** out of town.

ND: These guys flat out fly as well, you get a left lane bone head once in awhile, but it's rare. One thing I have noticed about ND drivers is, they don't like to be passed. I will come up to them, switch over into the left lane to pass and they speed up. It's like they will lose their manly card and 3 inches off their dick, if they get passed. If I see I'm coming up on a ND driver, I'll just bust it up to around 95-100 for a short burst, until I dust them. Once you're past them, all is right with their world.

WA: Ok, these guys are the kings of the left lane. They will NOT move, 95% of the time, unless you move 2.5 inches off their ass, lay the Smith & Wesson on the dash, or execute the pit maneuver. It's like they get some kind of prize and double their gas mileage, by not moving out of the left lane. I have had fun with a few of them in the past, in various ways.

MN: these guys do well on the highway, are not left lane dipshits and don't drive like blue hairs in the Buick, for the most part. The exception, MN may be the land of 10,000, but I can tell it's not the land of the mountains. Most of these guys just freak out when they hit a mountain road. Lord help you if you get behind one of them heading up switchbacks. The only way you don't triple your trip time, it to get them to use a pullout.

New Jersey in my personal experience. And it's not just driving. Try navigating through a Wal Mart in New Jersey, not even necessarily a busy one. Most places there's some semblance of order but in Jersey they literally will run their carts into your cart/ankles/ass to get where they want to go. And think it's perfectly acceptable and look at you funny if you protest. They drive the same way.

Yeah, I've driven all over the U.S. and have encountered my share of horrible drivers but it never ceases to amaze me how rude and awful the average Florida driver is. I just recently spent three weeks in Orlando, Miami and Key West and found crappy drivers wherever I went.

I took my wife to an outlet mall in Orlando with a large parking garage but ended up parking just outside of it. When we left our car we could see and hear approx 15 cars all blaring their horns trying to get out of the garage even though the poor bastard in front couldn't pull out due to all the heavy traffic on the main road. When we left the mall a couple hours later and pulled out to the main intersection the guy behind me started honking his horn immediately. Apparently the 1.5 seconds I used to stop at the sign and look for oncoming traffic was too long.

Being from Iowa I can say this part is true. Cars will drive slow in the left hand lane for miles.

Missouri though gets the cake. They drive like they're the only car on the highway. Dangerous drivers trump oblivious ones.

It is hands down, the Boston area of Massachusetts.

The rule of the road there, do not use signals, as you will be showing your hand and someone will make sure they don't let you make your turn.

If I lived there, I would drive a 20 year old beater with huge iron bumpers.

I'm glad to see the Sunshine State in the lead as it should be. I mean you guys have no earthly idea. It's almost as if, being inept at driving is a requirement to obtain your license.

While I voted Texas, I just noticed DC on the poll, and might actually change my vote to DC. People in that city drive like it's a third world country.

And this thread would not be complete without a mention of NYC cab drivers. The jokes about them are not jokes. They're true stories.

I chose Florida only because people are such poor drivers there they have found need to put up road signs 200 feet before intersections telling them what the next cross street is.

My experience has been jacksonville, fl and gainesville, fl. Worst drivers ever. Oh btw having the worst drivers doesn't = traffic dude. You arent understanding the OP.

In Florida, drivers play a game called "Guess what I'm gonna do next".

That they do. I think it has more to do with all of the foreigners than anything else though.


But nothing- NOTHING- equals Florida, which is just a mind**** experience. I think it has a lot to do with political lobbying making license renewal the easiest ****ing thing ever. Too many people in Florida have no business driving, but are continually allowed to do so, in order that politicians can be reelected.

I got my license in Florida. Honest to God, when I took the exam we didn't leave the parking lot. The instructor had me check my mirrors, accelerate to 20 mph and come to a stop comfortably, make a three-point turn, then park. Took all of 8 minutes and she gave me my license...

Yeah, I've driven all over the U.S. and have encountered my share of horrible drivers but it never ceases to amaze me how rude and awful the average Florida driver is. I just recently spent three weeks in Orlando, Miami and Key West and found crappy drivers wherever I went.

I took my wife to an outlet mall in Orlando with a large parking garage but ended up parking just outside of it. When we left our car we could see and hear approx 15 cars all blaring their horns trying to get out of the garage even though the poor bastard in front couldn't pull out due to all the heavy traffic on the main road. When we left the mall a couple hours later and pulled out to the main intersection the guy behind me started honking his horn immediately. Apparently the 1.5 seconds I used to stop at the sign and look for oncoming traffic was too long.

Just curious, what mall were you at that had a parking garage? (I'm an Orlandoanianite)

Move to Florida.

This. We get a little shower (which happens everyday around 3-4 pm during the summer time) and people suddenly forget how to drive. Seriously, you'd think the speed limits were lowered 20 mph on every road. ****ing infuriating.

But there's the likelihood that there's more of them if there's more cars on the road, right? I understand what the op means, dude.
