Monday’s post about the Allstate Insurance survey showing that St. Paul and Minneapolis feature some of the worst drivers in the nation certainly struck a nerve with readers, who went above and beyond in efforts to explain why the survey was probably wrong.
Because who are you going to believe: some insurance company or your lying eyes?
Let’s check in with our old colleague, Ken Paulman, who keeps an eye on the habits of drivers in these parts.
He’s not impressed either.
The blind man actually bumped into the car a couple of times before going around, the driver just ignored him. But remember to make eye contact before crossing!

It happened this morning around 7:45 at Wabasha and Fillmore in St. Paul, he says.
As long as we’re on the subject again, here’s another request. When it’s raining, and you can barely see the road in front of you despite the constant pounding of the windshield wipers, can you maybe turn on your lights?
Because, you know, it’s the law in Minnesota.
