You think Florida or NJ have the worst drivers?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Is this another excuse for being in the back of the NYACK race and hitting every pothole?

No worries, they all came from Jersey or Florida.

You've never been to South Carolina. An estimated 22% of drivers on the road at anytime are unlicensed and 30% uninsured.

I beg to differ in that RI has the worst drivers in the country. Oh, and the worst roads to go along with that as well. I'm going to need to get a full suspension road bike or something soon as I swear they tried to repave the roads around here about 20 years ago with landmines.

I hate this state.

Since at least half the morons who live in the "New" states move to Fla anyways I've got to ask (as a native Floridian): Does it really matter?

I would say VA is up there, but were just full of old people and by the time they get out to the car the Alzheimer kicks in and they forgot why they went outside so they go back inside to watch Wheel of Fortune.
