People drive like idiots in the state of NJ and dont know how to drive in snow let alone good weather. people tailgate pass anywhere they like and other idiots ride the left lane holding up traffic. these people are just as bad as the tailgaters as they are the ones who tie up the roads for normal people. both sides are at fault. if the police forced the "left lane louie's" to move right by ticketing them AS THE LAW STATES KEEP RIGHT PASS LEFT... the traffic flow would move more normal and you wouldnt see nearly as many passers on the right and the # of accidents would go down as well.

I witness multiple traffic violations everyday to and from work ranging from minor to major. I was not raised in this state but in other "aggressive" driving states. I think NJ has the worst drivers PERIOD. I still am baffled why people intentionally drive through red lights, like 10 seconds after the red. Driving is not a right, it's a privilege.
