CT! My home town! We were in the same state! Happy travels.

Well, I hate to say it, but CT is my least favorite state to drive through. CT drivers are by far the worst in the country. I can't even count how many close calls I had in that state because the people drive like total morons and the only reason they are still alive now is because I was paying attention and doing my job.

If folks there really want to kill themselves they should take some pills or something and leave me out of it.

You should come and try some driving around here. I can't count the times i've been called a b@#$% for simply following the law

I don't do much highway driving like you do so I don't have much to go on. My fave is driving through Westport where (and I swear it's true) people come to an intersection, pause, decide whether or not they want to make a turn, turn on their turn signal and then, finally, make their turn. Or sometimes not.

Really, I think there are awful drivers all over the country.

I am afraid of driving in the following states(mostly cause I've driven there
Florida: too many old people on the road
New York: whaddya, out of your mind?
New Jersey: they cross over back and forth from NY
California: I just don't understand all the crossovers
Massachusetts: OMG -- they drive so fast!

All's I can say is you've never driven until you've driven in Manhattan! Now that is scary.
