I'm in Boston right now, actually. I've only been here a few days, but
I'm amazed every day at how much better Boston drivers are than Utah
drivers. I also used to live about an hour north of Boston, and I
ended up meeting a surprising amount of Utahns there, as well as an
inordinate number of locals who had driven in Utah in the past. Not a
single one of them that I spoke with on the subject had anything good
to say about Utah drivers. Several of them noted how much more they
enjoy driving in New England than in Utah.

I've driven in several other states (I drove to New Hampshire 5 years
ago and then back to Utah 4 years ago). The easiest drivers to get
along with, by far, were California drivers. The absolute worst,
edging out even Utah, were Idaho drivers. Utah was an easy second.
Boston is crazy, but more because the roads are a mess (designed
hundreds of years ago by cows) than because the drivers are aggressive
(they want to be there yesterday).
