About This Quiz

Do you leave the radio blaring and the wipers wiping when you get out of your car? It might seem like a small detail to you, but it's not! Every one of your driving habits carries a trait that relates directly to where you grew up. Don't believe us? Tell us all about the way you handle yourself behind the wheel, and we'll show you what we mean.

Growing up in the hustle and bustle of New England is quite a different experience than growing up in the midwestern plains. It would be impossible to grow up where you did without a few of the state's traits rubbing off on you. The way you use your signals and the speed you drive says more about you than you think. If fact, it gives away the state you first called home.

During this quiz, you'll need to shift into neutral and maneuver your way through the obstacle course of your driving habits. If you can make it to the checkered flag without getting a ticket, you'll be on your way to revealing where you grew up. Will we get it right, or will we need to get out our maps and plan another route? Rev up your engines and find out!
