Okay, I've really had enough of New Jersey drivers. What's the deal? Why can't they drive? Insurance is so high in this state, and it's because we have really bad drivers.

NJ Transit Bus Crashes in North Bergen
NORTH BERGEN, N.J. (1010 WINS) -- An NJ Transit bus driver was hospitalized, and at least seven passengers were injured after a bus rear-ended a dump truck on Thursday morning.
The crash took place at about 6:50 a.m. at the corner of Westside Avenue and 69th Street, according to NJ Transit spokeswoman Penny Bassett Hackett.
The bus driver was pinned to the side of the cab and suffered serious leg injuries. He was taken to Jersey City Medical Center, police Lt. Mark Cerbo said.
The bus driver, pinned inside of the vehicle, was extricated after 25 to 30 minutes, North Hudson Regional Department acting deputy fire chief Robert Duane said.
While he did not know the condition of the driver or passengers, he told NorthJersey.com there was a "considerable amount of blood on the bus."
About seven other passengers reported injuries, with some taken to area hospitals, Cerbo said.
The bus was on the 83 line, and was heading north on Westside Avenue, on its way from Jersey City to Hackensack, Hackett said.
Westside Avenue was closed in both directions from 68th to 89th streets and delays were expected on route 83.
