It is part of the reason why ins is so high here. Why should we be paying insurance, because people are driving illegally. When an easy fix could be put in place. What kind of a population allows a state to operate like this?
The state does require insurance companies to notify them.

It's hardly a cakewalk-I lived in Miami for about 36 yrs and drove all over Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties for work over 15 yrs so I know how bad it is. But if Majami is comparing driving in Miami to driving in other countries ( he mentioned Egypt), such as some in Europe and South America, where traffic laws are considered suggestions and the right of way is a competitive concept-depends on who gets there first, driving in Miami probably IS a rather tame sport compared to the other countries.

Which is why Fla is becoming a dump. you get more and more ppl acting wreckless and don't assimilate the worse it continues to get.

How do you know if any given driver is an illegal immigrant?

I'm not sure, I was just pointing out how one could arrive at the 13-million figure with regards to the four locales that were mentioned.

What happened is someone stated that 2/3 of the drivers in the state population were in those 4 cities. 2/3 of the population would be about 13 million. Of course 13 million do not live in those 4 cities combined. Probably not even if the metro areas surrounding them were included.

The reply was...
Just about 2/3 of the population of the state, that's all.

4. Texas

5. Alabama

7. North Carolina (tie)

It is not ridiculous if you are a competent/experienced driver. You're more accustomed to driving in places that have 1/2 the volume of traffic so you would find driving in most major cities difficult.
