I agree, Miami has the worse drivers, followed by Orlando.

Only 22 spots? Pssht. With a little practice, we can make that up and be leading the country in bad driving. Wait till next year, DC !

Nowhere is worse to drive than Miami. Driving in that cesspool (aka North Cuba) will shave years off your life.

Jacksonville, Tampa and Orlando are not as bad as Miami, IMO. None are good place for pedestrians or cyclists, but drivers have 1,000 times the brain power than idiot Miamians and their reckless driving.

Miami was only ranked slightly worse than Tampa. It's pretty much unsafe in any city in Florida.

At least Floridians stay on the gas and go around. Worst states for drivers are Texas and Illinois. In both states, you either have type A business pricks tailgating and driving 95...or hicks and illegal immigrants driving 10 MPH under the speed limit in the passing lane.

Wait, I've read on DC Forums that Florida drivers are the worst...along with everything else here...cognitive dissonance...must...process...positive quantitative...data...

Apparently none of you have ever been in Boston traffic. THAT is a city full of bad drivers.

Florida drivers in general are the worst in the country as a whole, and it sounds like the list corroborates this thought. I've never seen as many accidents and pathetic decision making on the roads as I have since moving here last year.

People in the northern cities might drive aggressive, but at least they have some sense while doing it. Not sure if it's a product of driver training down here or what, but I'd say 40-50% of the people on the roads drive like they have half a brain.
