Kars 4 Kids recently launched a courteous driving campaign entitled #DriveHuman. The purpose of the campaign is make roads safer for drivers and passengers by discouraging bad driving behaviors that also are hazardous for everyone on the road. These behaviors include actions like tailgating,
A survey of 50 licensed drivers from each state revealed which states have the most courteous drivers, as well as the least courteous drivers. The results of the survey revealed that #1 Idaho had the most polite drivers, whereas #50 New York had the rudest drivers, a finding that is not much of a surprise to anyone.
Perhaps more surprising is the apparent rudeness of Wisconsin drivers, who came in at #46. According to the survey results, Wisconsin rated a C- when it comes to drivers responding aggressively to slow drivers, a D- for drivers allowing others to merge ahead of them in heavy traffic, and a C+ for responding rudely when a driver tailgates him or her. Wisconsin drivers do much better when it comes to using their turn signals (A), but apparently are notorious for stealing another person’s parking place (F). Wisconsin drivers also rated a D for speeding up in order to stop someone from passing them. Overall, drivers in Western states are the most courteous, as well as drivers nationwide from the ages of 51-64. Females are much more courteous drivers than men, in general.

We live in Friendship, Wisconsin, and Boller & Vaughan came to our doorstep to discuss our mother’s wrongful death claim on a Saturday morning. Not only were we pleased with the large recovery, we were so thankful to have lawyers who were willing to explain to us every twist and turn along the way. It is great to know there is a law firm that will fight for the rights of elderly people all over Wisconsin.
Mr. Boller and Ms. Vaughan were incredible in working on my case and my daughter’s case. I was out of work and in the hospital with a new baby. Mr. Boller and Ms. Vaughan protected our rights and it was a pleasure to work with them. I hope never to be in another motor vehicle accident, however, if I am and I am injured, I will contact Boller & Vaughan immediately.
I was referred to Michelle through a friend. I have never had a better experience. It took a little over a year to get my settlement but the staff there stayed in constant contact and kept me in the loop. Oh, and Michelle actually got me MORE money than we discussed. I will refer anyone to this firm. Words cannot do justice the thanks that I have for Michelle and her staff (Mary especially) thank you guys so much!
After my husband died as a result of a motor vehicle accident, Boller & Vaughan spent countless hours talking with me, meeting with me in person, and making sure that I was okay. The drunk driver who hit us did not have any insurance, and we had to make a claim through our own insurance. Boller & Vaughan was fantastic at explaining the law to me and the handling of our claims.
After my son was injured in a daycare setting, Ms. Vaughan took the time to thoroughly investigate our case and my son’s injuries. Michele was approachable and had answers to our questions. Talking with her helped to relieve many of our anxieties.
