Best/Worst Drivers in the US

  • Cities claim that they install speed and traffic lights to 'improve safety' when in reality they install them to collect additional funds; especially during the recent recession. You want proof? If it's for safety then why don't they force violators to take driver ed courses since it's obvious they ignore laws? Paying a ticket does absolutely nothing to instill safe driving practices; it just makes the driver a little poorer and the city a littler richer.
