New York City drivers is the worst.

The drivers are too agressive and won't give any ground. If they're behind you and you let someone cut in front, they'll get mad at you since that's the same as if someone cut in front of them and they lose their place. Also they have no respect for pedestrians.

There's a HUGE difference between rural Texas drivers and urban Texas drivers. We urban Texas drivers are "A holes" and I'll be the first to admit it. If you are traveling on two lane highways in more rural areas, it's very common for drivers going slower to move onto the shoulder to let you pass without having to cross the center line. As for the cops, I don't find them to be any stricter here than anywhere else--especially in the larger cities.

I agree with this statement. Of course, New Mexico has ridiculously low speed limits on many roads and I find the cops there to be much stricter than Texas cops.

The folks that drive the worst are the folks from out of town. They drive slower because they're lost, or unfamiliar with the roads and exits. Then they cut across traffic because they just realized that they've reached the right exit. THEN they say the drivers in that town are horrible because they're being honked at lol.

I don't think folks should make judgements about drivers in a certain city or town until they've driven there for at least a couple months. Depending on traditions and/or laws, some parts of the country drive differently for a good reason.

Try living in an area with tons of tourists in rental cars. You really don't know where they are from, but driving skills get noticebly worse as you get closer and closer to the tourist areas (ie Disney, Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, Hollywood et al).

That is how you are supposed to drive. Green means go... And for the pedestrians crossing they need to wait for their light... When it says cross that's when they should cross. They can't cross when the light is green for the cars. Those pedestrians do not deserve any respect.

Los Angeles has the worst drivers, especially during rush hour traffic.

Pittsburgh drivers were voted the most courteous recently. We have stop signs at the ends of our entrance ramps. It is quite a challenge to drive here.
