Zipper merging, using blinkers, looking over your shoulder… all are habits of good drivers. And all are habits that I think some people of MN need to practice… especially in St. Cloud according to 24wallst.com.
They composed an index of the worst drivers in each state based on the average commute time, gas prices, accident rates, an area’s safety, convenience, and cost of driving.
Some stats that 24wallst.com found about the drivers in St. Cloud that prove this worst-driver title is well-deserved:
