Red States Have The Worst Drivers…

I’ve had a sneaking suspicion that red states have the worst drivers. I recently moved to Arizona a little over a year ago from the High Desert in Southern California.  It’s a big change.  The city I now live in seems to pride itself on its ignorance and from what I’ve seen on the news, so does the rest of the state.  At least the vast majority of it does.  Seriously, from gun nuts walking around with their guns out to the outright disdain of anything they think is liberal.  You know, things like science and facts.  But, worst of all are the drivers.

On my cell phone, I have the ABC15 app.  It’s supposed to notify me of breaking news.  Sadly, it mainly just notifies me of the constant accidents in the center part of the state.  That’s another thing about Arizona that sucks.  If you don’t live in or around Phoenix, you don’t really matter.  If you’re lucky, you might get a mention on the news during the weather segment but that’s about it. I live closer to Los Angeles and Vegas than I do Phoenix but it seems that the whole states is forced to hear about the news from Phoenix and it’s border cities. Even so, day or night, when I get a notification it’s about one of two things, there’s an accident or there’s been another shooting.

We are constantly being told by gun nuts that there would be less shootings if everyone had guns.  So not the case.  Our state legislature also came up with the brilliant idea that once you get a drivers license it’s pretty much yours to keep until you’re 65.  Seriously, when I got my Arizona license last year I thought it was a mistake when it appeared to be good for the next 20 years.  Expires, 8/27/34, it had to be an error.  No mistake. I am good to go.

Can you believe that? If I end up needing glasses in the near future the MVD could care less. I am good to go. I could lose a fucking a limb and MVD don’t care. They’re like the Honey Badger of the vehicle world.  Within a few weeks of moving here I had already driven by several accidents.  Mostly old people that have lost of all concept that other people are on the road.  I am constantly being cut off by old fucknuts that shouldn’t be driving.  Or worse, having these idiots just pull right out in front of me like I’m not even there.  I have watched them, they don’t even look before they pull out into traffic.  If I wasn’t paying attention to them we’d both be dead.  But, to be fair, it’s not just old people.  Arizona drivers seem to take driving as a right and not a privilege. It’s just that almost every time I come upon an accident or someone cuts me off, it’s an old person involved.

All of this made me wonder, do all red states have the worst drivers?  It made perfect sense in my mind. I mean, in this day and age, anyone stupid enough to support the republican party can’t be too fucking bright.  I know this because I’ve debated enough of them to know that their elevators don’t go to the top floor.  So I did a few Google searches and guess, what? Red states have the worst drivers!

8 out of the 10 states labeled for worst drivers, are red states.  The two wobbler states are Delaware and Hawaii.  All the remaining states are without a doubt, red states.  Seems the more dumbed-down a state is, the worse their driving becomes. It’s sad, but when states don’t care enough to educate their people, what do you expect?

Well, as usual, don’t take my word for it, below are a couple links were you can read up on the subject.  Or just do your own Google search and see what you find.
