Honestly it goes back to what I have been saying for years. drivers from neighboring states drive NUTS in your state., NJ drivers are nuts in Pa and pa drivers are nuts in NJ. See it all the time. Seems like when ya drive in another state you don't respect their rules.. Its weird

I think most people in general are awful drivers and others just notice those who are from out of state because the plates are different. Nobody is going to see a car with PA plates doing crazy stunts in the city and be like "wow PA drivers are awful." Same thing with NJ plates down the shore. Bad NJ drivers get noticed in PA and vice versa.

The absolute worst drivers are the cabbies. They have no respect, wether your on two feet or four wheels.
You have to visit Lagos or Mumbai to appreciate taxi drivers and don't forget time is money.

The data is from the NJ State Police. They're not in the business of making up crash statistics.

I find this hard to believe..

Crashes per county
Camden = 2.835 (crashes per 100 people)
Burlington=2.835
Gloucester=2.637
Montgomery=1.049
Bucks = .943
Delaware = .818
Chester = .864
Philadelphia = .745
