Report Says Philly Drivers 2nd Worst In Nation

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

How bad is it out there on our roads? Wait until you hear what people around the country are saying tonight about Philadelphia drivers.

Slate.com is out with a new report that, after tweaking studies like insurance carrier AllState's to account for mileage, fatalities and other factors, creates a new list of cities with the worst drivers.

And, you guessed it, Philly didn't fare so well.

After the modifications, Miami, tops the list as the worst driving city, but we're right behind them at No. 2.

As Slate puts it, "Drivers in the City of Brotherly Love enjoy a good love tap behind the wheel. Second-places finishes in collisions and pedestrian strikes overwhelm their semi-respectable 16th-place ranking in DWI deaths."

Not too far away was Baltimore in fifth place.

Agree with the findings or think they're way off? Tell us in the comments below!
