The Five: Worst drivers in the Valley

Sep 10, 2013, 12:00 PM | Updated: 12:00 pm

A lot of rain in the Valley Monday, which typically means a lot of conversations in local offices about how bad Arizonans are at driving in moisture.

We have the pictures to prove it. Cars floating down streets or half-buried in ditches, we’ve all done some stupid things behind the wheel, but it takes a special breed of faulty operator to try and accelerate through a wall of water.

This week’s “The Five” isn’t meant to make the hydroplaner feel worse. After all, they’ve had a pretty bad day as it is. I see no reason to pile on. No, this week’s list is an attempt to make those poor water-soaked folks feel a little better about themselves.

“The Five” tackles the five drivers who are more stupid than “tries to drive through water guy.”
