First off, I just love theses two toll plaza photos. Great images. I’ve looked at them enough times that I was able to identify unequivocal clues as to which driver entered first and which one couldn’t wait his turn. If you figure out which one was first and can back it up, write up a comment and I will let you know if you are right. A prize for the first one to get it right without guessing.

Anyway, last post, I reported that New Yorkers are the angriest drivers in the country. Well, another report indicates that they are also the least educated from a driver safety point-of-view. According to the results of a national driver test recently conducted by GMAC Insurance. The test measures how much participants know about safe driving and was given to more than 5,000 drivers throughout the United States and the District of Columbia.

Anyway, New York finished dead last. By the way, in 2008, New York finished third to last last. The smartest drivers are from Idaho according to test results.

GMAC said about the results that out of roughly 41 million drivers on the road, 20% “would not pass a written drivers test exam if taken today” with most having trouble with what to do about an amber light and how far is a safe distance to trail another vehicle. Older drivers scored higher than younger drivers with the most age group category being adults 18 to 24 years old.

  • Scott, 100% correct. You actually can see evidence that the Honda was first in both photos.

    In the top one, you can see that Honda’s left tail light is out from the impact with the Nissan. And in the bottom one you can see the damage to the Nissan’s right head light which it came into contact with the Honda tail light.

    Thanks for solving this puzzle. You win the prize … A coupon from us to fight any traffic ticket issued in New York State. Redeemable anytime. Please don’t feel like you can drive with impunity (although I hope you are glad to have us on your side).

    Best, Matt

  • I think the Honda was first, because the Nissan’s headlight clearly collided with the Honda’s taillight.
