Are we, as New Yorkers, good drivers? Depending on who you're talking to, it could go either way.

As Hudson Valley residents I think we could argue that city drivers are the worst, but that's neither here nor there.

The site focused on four different categories including drivers with insurance, number of DUIs per driver, average number of deaths per miles driven and how often residents google terms like "traffic ticket" or "speeding ticket."
