    I wonder what percentage are caused by illegals?

    1. Xen says:

      Many of those drivers are N.Y. transplants.

  2. doc says:

    There was a time when So Cal had the safest drivers in the nation. Then you know what happened…

  3. Steamboat says:

    Glendale…go figure. I’ve lived in Glendale all my life and the drivers there are ridiculous. They are just way too aggressive and in a hurry to get nowhere. It used to be that you can tell a bad driver by how messed up their cars were, but Glendale is the exception to that rule. They drive really nice cars.

    1. No Trick says:

      Nice cars that are salvaged. Don’t be fooled.

    We found out in previous articles at least PART of the reason – people that work for certain agencies are doing things they arent suppose to be doing -giving licenses and certifications to people that havent earned them, not to meantion the “fake licenses and ID’s that is as we have recently learned generated from “street crime” – yet our insurance rates continue to rise because of said individuals accidents etc…. thats why we pay so much for insurance to protect ourselves and our own properties – because of people that havent followedthe rules – like we all have to – therefore WE pay for it ….

    So how many people live in Fort Collins and how many people live in Los Angeles? Did they put that in the equation? Not to mention the stress level in general in LA compared to a smaller city.

    1. Earl says:

      They forgot to mention all the fraudulent claims also. Someone made a claim pretending to be me. When the insurance company called and said they were processing my claim, man was I stunned.

  6. MARK says:

    Yeah in Glendale people drive nices car, but its all armenians who live in apartments and can’t affort repairs to their vehicles and start tampering with tem.

  7. go metro says:

    according to these morons commenting, “legal” drivers are much safer. hahahahahhahahahaha oh my gosh. ok. Let me tell you my very “legal” next door neighbor who is of the white race drives like a loony on speed. unsafe drivers come in different shapes,race and sizes.

  8. Judy says:

    Thank you Mark!! Great point!

  9. Astonished says:

    Did they really have to do a study on this? What purpose does this report serve except to give the insurance companies empetis to raise our rates!

  10. jay hull says:

    Fort Collins is a TOWN NOT A City! I should know born in the city of Denver!

    1. randy says:

      Huh? Maybe a while since you’ve been back to CO. Ft. Collins’ population is over 130,000, and the city has its own website. If you’re trolling, you got me!

  11. John Ashton says:

    DMV should do a better job- they’re just handing out licenses to any and everybody. You have so many peopl.e who are very poor drivers here and these insurance companies are full of you know what….

  12. Mufon says:

    The worst drivers? On the 405 in OC, between the LA County line, and Irvine.
