I recently asked those who follow us on Facebook what they believe the single biggest problem in El Paso is.

Bad drivers came up a lot.

So would it surprise you to know that contrary to local belief, El Paso drivers are not the worst. El Pasoans, in fact, are among the best in Texas, according to Quotewizard.

The internet insurance comparison service reached that conclusion after analyzing statistics from users of its website.The study determined El Pasoans are the 6th safest behind the wheel.

Sorry Quotewizard, I’m going to have to call b.s. on this.


I’m out there every day and most days El Paso drivers make me want to punch a baby. Of course, I never would, I mean, babies are adorable and all that, but that’s how frustrated driving on the mean streets of El Paso can make me feel.

Like the other day, I saw a girl reading her texts while driving down Mesa at 40 m.p.h. Can you believe that? She barely looked up once in half-a-block. I got so mad I put down the delicious burrito I was eating, stopped fiddling with my car radio, rolled down my window, and yelled at her.

Horrible drivers here. Not you or me, of course, we're great drivers, but everyone else on the road? Morons who think they’re in a The Fast and the Furious movie or a live-action Grand Theft Auto video game.

So, yeah, I’m not so sure I agree with this study’s results. Some days I have to forego driving altogether just to give my middle finger some much needed rest.
