1999-2001 I commuted in Boston one week there, two weeks at home, which was Portland for six months, then Denver for a year (during which I alternated Denver/Boston/Portland), then Portland again. By the end of that, I was an automotive schizoid. Being a "good" Boston driver made me a flaming asshole to Portlanders...
Agreed. I used to work and drive in the Boston area too. Driving is much more of a competitive sport there.
If you want to see a place with truly bad drivers by any standard then go to British Columbia. Not all of them are bad but their proportion of bad drivers is pretty high. I always stay clear of cars with BC plates.
