We're all used to speeding up when the light turns yellow, but now it seems like people drive through red and stop at green.  How can we have the best drivers?

According to a new report from Forbes, New Jersey drivers are ranked fifth best in the country.

The report considered several statistics, including the Total number of fatal car accidents per 100,000 licensed drivers.

The number of fatal car accidents involving a driver who was driving too fast for conditions, speeding, or racing per 100,000 licensed drivers

The number of DUI arrests per 100,000 licensed drivers, and more.

The state with the worst drivers in the country is New Mexico.

New Mexico has the highest number of fatal accidents that involve distracted drivers,  the second highest number of fatalities involving high speed, and the third highest number of drunk driving fatalities.
