I don't know why you're all complaining, we didn't even make the list:
The 10 states with the best ? and worst ? drivers in America - Business Insider
And then it's all relative, because there is the rest of the world ...

Personally, I have more problems with BMW, Mercedes, Audi, Full size pick-ups, Mid-sized sports cars, Porsche Cayenne, Subaru, red car, black car, drivers. Alright, pretty much anyone driving a car. They're all out to kill me, and I ride accordingly.

They are not the easiest cars to see out of and they are not good in rain, snow or ice, from my experience.

My father has had our 2005 Prius for 220k miles. We get maybe ~2 MPG less on average than when it was new, but other than that it has not had one major problem ever. It is probably the most economical and practical car we have ever owned.

Used to pedal-bike commute. ALWAYS had to keep your eye on the Prius, always seemed to be the one being distracted driving and swerving, suddenly slowing, turning in front of you, etc etc... Weird combination of bad driver archetypes seem to gravitate to it.

I see stupid executed by all types of cars, and bikes too. Doesn't seem to lean toward any one type in my observations.

All told I'll take the Prius.
Don't forget crazy minivan drivers. And agreed #1 (Audi) has to stay in front. I thought suburu was the WA state car and Audi was the OR state car. I think the fart car is CA's state car. I still remember the loud bass at 3:00 a.m. in the morn. Happens here too, but not as much. I saw a mercedes with a plate that said BMWsux (approx. spelling) heading northbound on the I-205. Like totally. I can hear that jingle in my head now. (MB of Wilsonville)

I had a cop yell at me because i wouldn't answer a call direct from him while driving to help my stranded GF where he was calling from. I was only a mile away, so wtf. Wait for it.....BTW: Agree w/ pulling over gradually. The call is not that important to risk your life over. Evern if a cop is calling you. You will wait.

#1. They are VERY hard to see out of. I didn't like sitting in one. I know i would have taken out someone eventually if i drove that thing.

I would dig a two stroke prius made out spider web / carbon fiber tech (would that even be possible?). When the electric drains out, the two stroke kicks in w/ a nice cloud of smoke and maybe a wheelie if you hit it just right.

Price ..... 1million dollas, for off road use only

Yes. But...

I generally don't mind Audi's and BMW's wanting to drive at 80 mph. I drive a BMW and if it weren't for the ticket liability I would drive everywhere at 80 mph. So when some dummy wants to run the WaStaPo speed blockades I happily abide them.

Priii - pronounced (pre-eye) - prefer to proceed at 55 mph in the left lane, until somebody has the gall to try and pass them, which briefly elicits a response involving the accelerator. Once all who attempt to pass are vanquished by the 121 combined hp, they slow back down to a very reasonable 55 mph and establish their moral superiority over all of the other gasoline burning vehicles because they burn slightly less.

Not good in all those conditions comes down to tires. Get good ones (just like on a bike) and the results will be better.

That said, the traction control system SUCKS in icy conditions. So effective at withholding power at launch so as not to slip that eventually the car just won't move.
