Insurance company GMAC surveyed drivers across the country and found that NY State drivers are terrible - they only rank 47th when asked questions from DMV test. Well, we're not that surprised, given what we've seen, but we'd like to know where NJ drivers ranked, but it's Gothamist's firm belief that the crap drivers are not just in NYC but all over the state. Anyway, the state with the most knowledgable drivers? Oregon. One of the questions NY drivers did worst on was when is the road most slippery. "1) During a heavy rainstorm; 2) During light rain; 3) Just when it starts to rain after a dry spell." We'll put the answer in the comments.

You can take the same test here and see how you do.
