NW Poll

Driving Skills

Wednesday, June 12, 2019by  PEMCO Insurance

According to the 2019 PEMCO Insurance NW Poll a vast majority of drivers give themselves high marks when it comes to driving skills like parallel parking and merging, but give fellow NW drivers much lower grades. How about you? How well do you (and others) think you drive? Would the opinions be different?

About the PEMCO Insurance Northwest Poll
PEMCO Insurance commissioned this independent survey, conducted by FBK Research of Seattle, that asked Washington and Oregon residents questions about driving habits and attitudes toward current Northwest issues. The sample size, 600 respondents in Washington and 600 in Oregon, yields an accuracy of +/- 4.1 percent at the 95 percent confidence level. In other words, if this study were conducted 100 times, in 95 instances the data will not vary by more than the associated error range.
