Ever since we moved to Florida, Richard and I have noticed one thing — the drivers here are terrible!! Seriously. They pull out in front of you if they spot a 3″ gap. They change lanes randomly. They sit at lights talking or texting and don’t notice when the light changes to green. They make right hand turns from the left lane and vice versa. They sit at a light in the left turn lane, and then go straight. They think that using your blinker is for people from out-of-state — no native Floridian ever uses a turn signal.
Then I heard this on the news: The insurance industry did a study of drivers nationwide. Florida drivers are the 6th worst in the country. So it isn’t my imagination. It’s true!! Forty-four states in the country have better drivers!! Not surprisingly, Florida rates as the second worse for texting and driving and it isn’t against the law here.
The worst state is Louisiana. One can only imagine the chaos on their streets.
