Poll: Garden State drivers admit breaking the law
A recently released survey revealed some New Jersey motorists owning up to some poor driving habits.
A survey put out by Fairleigh Dickinson University's PublicMind Poll and co-sponsored by the New Jersey Division of Highway and Traffic Safety has drivers admitting to knowingly breaking the laws of the road.
According to the survey, 25 percent of drivers admit to speeding most of the time. More than half of the drivers under 30 says they frequently text message on the road, while 79 percent say they witness others chatting on hand held phones frequently.
The survey also polled drivers on road etiquette. Twenty-seven percent admitted to making rude gestures to others on the road.
In an interesting juxtaposition, New Jersey motorists ranked themselves above average drivers and blame New Yorkers for making the roads unsafe.
