I Knew It!

People from Jersey can't drive!

People driving in Newark are more likely to be in a car crash than virtually any other large city in the country.

New Jersey's other big cities, Elizabeth, Jersey City and Paterson, aren't much better. In fact, a study by Allstate Insurance Co. finds four of the six worst cities to drive in are right in the Garden State.

The company's customers reported accidents in Newark an average of once every 5.2 years, tops on the list. By contrast, the national average was once every 10 years.

Elizabeth was No. 3 on the list, with drivers reporting an accident every 5.7 years. Jersey City was No. 5 (once every 6.2 years) and Paterson was No. 6 (once every 6.5 years).

The study was based on collision data collected between January 2004 and December 2005 for the 197 largest cities where the insurance carrier does business.

To everyone I offended from Jersey, I'm just reiterating the facts. I know many nice people from Jersey, in fact they are often much more humble than us folks on the otha side of the river. Probably because it's in our nature to take shots at them. Seriously though, stop tailgating me when I'm on the road in your phallic vehicles, and we'll go back to the usual ragging fare.
