The best drivers are in Surrey BC, (aka Brampton of BC). :razz:

I actually suggested this as a counter to 'Canada's worst driver' but ppl like to focus on -ives. I'd watch that show.

'tis true there are lousy drivers everywhere, that's why ppl always say '(my area) has the worst drivers!'.

It's interesting that when we ask about the worst drivers, people tend to pinpoint an area (ex: Markham, Quebec, Richmond etc.), but when OP asked about the area with the best drivers, people went either to individuals (aka themselves) or to brands. Only a few people actually listed an area :lol:
It's kinda like good ref'ing in sports. You don't and aren't supposed to notice the good ones but the bad ones really stand out like sore thumbs.

Best drivers are small town residents. You can stand on the side of the street and know instantly who is the douche from GTA visiting and who is a resident there by how they drive.
People are inherently good drivers when they first learn. Then they slowly get tainted more and more as they have to endure the hell that is big city traffic.
By the end it's just a soulless shell in a cutthroat world.

Small towns don't have this, and they remain sane.

Where I come from they say that the best drivers are the ones that rest in the cemetery. i hope this is clear.

Good driving is an experiential learning process.

Impossible to answer because of population differences.

There are plenty of good drivers in big cities but there are also enough bad drivers to make it seem otherwise.

Mentioning smaller cities and towns isn't really fair not just because there are fewer drivers (and fewer chances of seeing screw-ups), but driving in smaller places is generally easier, so it might seem like they're better. But in reality they just have less obstacles to deal with, less to react to, etc.

yeah

in Toronto you have to worry about cyclists, pedestrians, grannies, people from out of town that have never driven in the city before, congestion, busy intersections, people that are in a rush, tighter streets, less space.

so yeah, it's not the same sensory over load as driving out in small town.

Let's be realistic, there are no best drivers anywhere in the world. Each driver made some mistakes. That's my opinion, maybe I'm wrong, correct me if I'm.

I'm gonna say they are located OUTSIDE major urban centers.

Rural drivers have good etiquette. In certain towns they wave hello when passing each other.

if there are no best drivers how come people on rfd say "x place has worst drivers" all the time..? if there is worst by definition there is best..
