NJ Drivers Among the Rudest
The results of a study that places drivers in New Jersey among the top 10 rudest in America may not shock anyone who's ever spent any time on any of the Garden State's roadways.
If you're looking for a silver lining in this insure.com study, it may be that we didn't make the top 5. We actually finished at number 8 according to the 2000 drivers nationwide who were surveyed.
The top 3 rudest states are Idaho (topping the list), Washington D.C. came in second and our neighbors in New York ranked #3. Wyoming, Massachusetts, Vermont and Delaware are also ruder than we are on the roadway.
I look at it this way. This is New Jersey. My first reaction to being 8th rudest was, "Hey, not bad." And by the way, let me say for every rude driver in New Jersey, there are probably four or five really nice courteous drivers, right? Right??
