Wow. Our experiment is off to a great start—let's see if we can finish it off sooner than expected.
The results of the GMAC National Drivers Test are out, and this year the most knowledgable drivers in the country come from.....Kansas! Hooray for Kansas. Oregon, South Dakota, and Minnesota get honorable mentions. The least knowledgable come from New York. Boo New York. New Jersey, DC, and California have nothing to brag about either. Click here to see how your state did.
Thirsting for more? The GMAC test has 20 questions, and nearly 20% of Americans failed by getting a score of less than 14. Older drivers did better than younger ones. Men did better than women. Toughest question: what should you do at a yellow light? 85% of drivers got it wrong.
(Full disclosure: I got it correct, but only by sussing out the "right" answer. My typical behavior is much more in line with the 85%. I think you can guess what I'm talking about here.)
