Mass. is where I learned to drive.
I remember being on vacation in Colorado and upsetting the natives with my driving "skills"

No we know who killed the Kennedys.

Some companies will not sell auto insurance in the Commonwealth of Kennedychusetts.

Having lived in New Haven for four years, I think that the Allstate people have been too kind. I suspect that NH ranks only #191 because most of the city's drivers don't have any insurance at all.

On a positive note, four Kansas entries rank in the top twenty, three of them in the top ten. Go Kansas!

Note that this is based just on number of accidents, not fatalities.

Having lived in Massachusetts, I can attest that the driving up there is godawful.

Rest easy. Guess which state they most likely learned to drive in.

When I went to school up there, over 50 years ago, I was told that the reason that Boston driving is so bad is that during the regime of Mayor James Michael Curley, corruption was so great that money appropriated for traffic signals was diverted, so that Boston was left without effective traffic signals. Thus, Boston drivers had to learn to fend for themselves.

If you've ever driven through Kelly Square in Worcester, you'll know why they're dead last. The rule is you cannot look another driver in the eye.
