Here’s a piece from MSNBC that lists the worst and best states for getting speeding and other driving-related tickets.
The state ranked the worst based on 17 factors, including:
- Speed limits.
- The use of red-light or speed cameras.
- Laws banning cell phone use while driving.
- Whether speeders are allowed jury trials.
- The number of speed traps (weighted by population).
The worst five:
1. New Jersey
5. New York
The best five:
My home state of South Dakota is #42 and my current state of Minnesota is #44. The only speeding ticket I have received in my 18 years of driving was in South Dakota (1998). I think my wife must be seeking out the police in Minnesota! ;-)
