Newnan, are you one of the worst drivers in America

How long has it been since you tested your knowledge of the road? I guess it depends on the last time you took defensive driving.

For the past five years, GMAC has surveyed 5,000 people across the country with 20 test questions taken from various state driving tests. Overall, the Northeast had the lowest average test scores at 74.5 percent, and the South had the highest failure rate at 41 percent. The Midwest had the highest average test scores at 79 percent and the lowest failure rates at 15 percent. (Test-takers need to score at least 70 percent on the test to pass.)

If the numbers from the GMAC survey held true for the entire U.S. population, that means roughly 41 million licensed Americans on the road today would not pass a written drivers test exam. Don’t you feel safe on the road now?

Take a crack at it yourself and see how you do.
