I don't think they're any worse in Garland than anywhere else but since school started, drivers here are IN.SANE.

I've jumped around exploring around forums (cities) here on city data and if there is one thing almost all have in common is the whining or complaining of bad drivers. So I wouldn't give this article much weight. There are bad drivers e-v-e-r-ywhere.

grew up in Garland. Not even close to the horrible driving on the west side of Houston or down near the RGV.

Perfect example of how news reporters can misconstrue the facts for a headline!

Per the
article:
Quote:
Garland police spokesman Joe Harn told The Dallas Morning News that the criteria are "unfair." It only represents the 10 percent of drivers who are covered by Allstate, for example; Garlandites with other coverage could have sterling safety records. It also doesn't control for where an accident happens, just where the driver lives.
