Driver’s Ed, Perhaps? [Mixed Reviews By People Who Don’t Live Here]

We already knew that Nashville had some pretty bad drivers. Our daily commutes are such an adventure that we’re really not surprised that Tennessee drivers scored 38th place in a test administered by GMAC Insurance to test basic driving knowledge. Folks, that means that we are ranked in 14th place among States With The Worst Drivers. We hate to say it, but we told you so. Thanks to Dan Cotton for the tip!

And we may have figured out why Tennessee has such bad drivers. According to a recent study, 42% of Tennesseans text while driving, granting us the first-place trophy for texty states. Compare that to Arizona’s 18.8%  texting drivers, and reality stings just a little. [via Post Politics]
