Utahns Better Drivers than Californians
But we're still not very good. Here's an experience we've all had: Being lectured by some snot nosed Californian about how terrible Utah drivers are. We've always guiltily believed them. After all, California is California, and we're just lowly Utah. It's time to fire back. According to the GMAC Insurance National Driver's Test, Utah scored higher than California. Utah has better drivers than California. In fact, we put nine other states in between us and them. Utah was 33rd, California 43rd. Now, with that said, we do need to be better drivers. I have never advocated the (horrifyingly named) Legacy Highway and one of the reasons is that until Davis County learns to drive on the one they have, they should not be given another. I am mystified that even with all the bellyaching about 15 being the only way in or out, there are still almost daily accidents that back up traffic. I would think that if the route were so important, people would be more cautious about their driving. Part Of The Plan has some good tips for local yokels when we get behind the wheel.
