Austinites Ranked Worst Drivers in Texas

Via Austinist (June 22th) -

According to the 2007 Allstate America’s Best Drivers Report™, Austinites get into more crashes than drivers in any of the 20 other Texas cities on the list. Austin ranked 179 out of 197 cities nationwide and Austin drivers are 31% more likely to get into a crash than the average American driver. Motor vehicle traffic crashes are the leading cause of death for Americans aged 4 to 34.

Why is Austin so bad? Sorority sisters sporting SUVs? Road-raging Round Rockians? Hopped-up hipsters in hybrids? Californian carpetbaggers? Let's group Austinites into vaguely offensive generic groups and assign blame for our city's ills (alliterative categories only, please). Ok? Go.


I like to blame it on the poor road
