I can't believe this report. I only drive about ten miles per day and its rare that I don't see a single major violation of traffic laws. I almost got killed last week by someone driving on the wrong side of Neil road. I've seen people drive over raised center divides to make U-turns. Nearly everyday I see drivers run stop signs. I live on a street with two public schools and still people drive 15-40 mph over the 25mph limit. I've lived all over the US and for such a small area I would rank Reno as the worst bunch of drivers ever. I suspect the low number of accidents is due to the excellent "defensive" driving skills you develop after a short time in Reno. Reno is not a pleasant place to drive.

In Portland, a much larger metro area, there is plenty of congestion and also some challenging conditions in the rainy season(s). they have many complicated ramps and bridges, etc. & they also have a 55 speed limit within the core area. reno has way too many aggressive drivers and speeders, plus localun-awareness despite the Utopian "zero fatalities' and some Orwellian 'checkpoints'. i would like to see the methodology behind this dubious report.

This "report" didn't ask my middle finger.
