Drivers in the Garden State finished 51st - behind Washington D.C. Pennsylvania and Delaware also dwelled in the bottom half.

GMAC says respondents continued to have difficulty on questions about yellow lights and safe following distances. Eighty-four percent could not identify the correct action to take when approaching a steady yellow traffic light, and 73 percent could not properly identify a typical safe following distance from the car in front of them.
