Try driving in the snow in DC. Now that's taking your life in your hands! Of course the same could be said about driving in any kind of weather around this city.
(Puffing out chest) New Mexico has the absolute worstest of the worstest drivers. That's why car insurance is higher here than in other states. Our DWI statistics have improved slightly, though--we're only the 8th worst state now (and that's with a state twice the size of Pennsylvania and a tenth of the population).
Driving on the wrong side of limited access highways is a fairly common occurence here, too. Just last month some drunken idiot (.32 alcohol level) was driving the wrong way and wiped out a family of five and himself. Only one little girl survived. Since then two more drivers were caught going the wrong way.
Oh, and cars are cheaper here because turn signals are not needed. Plus it's always exciting watching drivers suddenly exit left when they were in the right lane three lanes over, etc. Red lights are merely a suggestion; stop signs are invisible. And on and on. You should drive here a few days. If you survive, I'll give you one for the road.
