Not according to allstate.. Not even close if you read the article. Fact are facts no matter how much you don't believe them

Very weird cause it ain't true... The Allstate article is. Its a person writing down numbers with no factual bases. The article says Philly and the pa burbs are a MUCH higher accident rate area then anywhere in NJ.. And my insurance rate agrees when it dropped moving out of Philly and into Jersey

Yeah, I don't know what's up with that . . . because when you look at IIHS-HLDI
you see that fatalities in NJ are lower per 100,000 people and also lower per 100 million vehicle miles travelled than they are in PA.

They're actually 40% lower in NJ and deaths from drunk driving in NJ is 26% vs. 33% in PA.

That data around NJ from county-to-county does vary widely so I'm not sure what's up with the South Jersey counties. I got the data from the State Police website. I'll look around again to see if there's anything else out there. It might just be that the police have a different way of aggregating crash data than the insurance companies do - but you can't get around the traffic fatalities.

Philly drivers arent really "bad" drivers but can tend to be rude and aggresive ( dont signal, cut you off etc)


The absolute worst drivers are the cabbies. They have no respect, wether your on two feet or four wheels.

That still doesn't mean that there aren't plenty of crazy drivers in NJ to begin with. Everything may not necessarily lead to an accident but that doesn't mean that their aren't plenty of reckless drivers here who do things that almost gets them into car accidents.
