At Risk on the Road: Jersey Drivers Admit to Some 'Unsafe' Behaviors

At Risk on the Road: Jersey Drivers Admit to Some 'Unsafe' Behaviors
BY STEVE MANAS
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

In a state famous for its turnpike and infamous for traffic, tolls and “Jersey drivers,” a new partnership between the Rutgers-Eagleton Poll and Rutgers New Jersey Medical School (NJMS) has launched a series of public health polls with a survey about risky driving habits. New Jerseyans were asked about their perceptions of safety both as a driver and passenger.

“Three-quarters of New Jerseyans are behind the wheel nearly every day. They are continually at the center of jokes and have even been ranked as some of the worst drivers in the country,” said David Redlawsk, director of the Eagleton Center for Public Interest Polling (ECIP) and professor of political science. “The ‘Jersey Driver’ ID implies a certain impatience and rudeness to those outside of the state, and perhaps risky driving behavior, which makes the stereotype a great place to start our new partnership.”
