    Are you a safe driver?

    Magazine ranks Des Moines, Iowa at the top; Columbia, S.C. the worst

    Quick. Where are the safest drivers in the country?

    A new magazine ranking says Des Moines, Iowa.

    But the cities that follow on the list from Men’s Health Magazine may be somewhat puzzling. After Des Moines are Jersey City, New Jersey; New York City; Yonkers, New York, and San Francisco.

    And where are the worst drivers?

    Columbia, South Carolina,leads the list, followed by St. Louis; Greensboro, North Carolina; Jackson, Mississippi, and Cheyenne, Wyoming.

    The survey used data from National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Allstate Insurance and the Governors Highway Safety Association to rank 100 cities.

    The key factors in deciding the rankings include the total number of fatal accidents and fatal crashes caused by speeding.

    Not necessary.
    They all reside down here in the area known as Tidewater VA (Newport News, Suffolk, Norfolk, Virginia Beach).

    Iowa, of course you are safe, everything is flat and there aren't too many people around.

    Ride a bike across Iowa and then come back and tell us if it's flat.

    Re: Are you a safe driver?

    The survey is skewed quite a bit.
    I don't see how you determine who the worst drivers are from the number fatal accidents in a particular region.
    There are so many factors you have to throw into the mix...and if you asked anyone they would say the worst drivers in the world reside where they live.
    Speed is not the cause of car accidents...Driving too fast for conditions is...and there is a difference.
    Until they changed the law I will never write a speeding ticket.
    Nor will I be a money making pawn for any government on any level.

    Stop applying real-world logic and experience here, bruddah.
    It's just annoying.

    I worked in Harrisonburg, VA for 6 years, and I think they are the worst drivers in the world.
    The place gave me major road rage.

    I'll give ya Harrisonburg.
    I was there once.



    Looks like between your post and mine we have enough statistical data to support that Va has the worst drivers
    ;D
