SUN CITY, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) - Stanley Roberts receives a lot of complaints about drivers misbehaving in Sun City, the self-proclaimed "Original Fun City.

However, most, if not all, of the bad behavior is attributed to the snowbirds.

[WATCH: Despite less snowbirds, drivers are caught misbehaving in Sun City]

Snowbirds are homeowners who live in other states but come to live in Arizona during the winter months.

So under the theory that the bad driver habits are by snowbirds, Roberts investigated the driving habits during the off-peak time with some interesting results.

One thing he discovered is golf carts drivers are just as bad as automobile drivers when it comes to stopping for stop signs or signaling. Also, one of the first rules of golf carts is never mentioning golf carts!

Some residents agree that drivers are bad across the board, not just snowbirds.

Caught Misbehaving with Stanley Roberts exposes individuals who brazenly defy the law or common courtesy, risking social and/or legal consequences. His reports air regularly on CBS 5 News at 10 p.m.

I live on 99th Ave near the firehouse. Since the snowbirds left, the ambulance and sheriff vehicle traffic has reduced to a small fraction of winter-spring, to a trickle. My God, you'd think someone was having a medical emergency every ten minutes.

Is it really necessary to debate WHICH state has the worst drivers?? I'm quite certain people of EVERY state can argue they have the best or the worst drivers. You rubes and your ridiculous masturbatory keyboard exercises never cease to amuse me.

Stupid article. You can go anywhere in this state and see thee most idiotic drivers in the country. I have seen every day the most stupid moves by people. I just don't understand why Phoenix PD doesn't just put a cop on any corner of this place. They could write tickets all day long. But they would rather park their lazy rumps in the shade and hide with a radar gun.

Always good to take a childish cheap shot at the police every chance you get... I'm guessing you would NOT support photo radar though, right?

Most bad drivers in Arizona are transplants from other states where they were originally bad drivers.

Yes, because Arizona never had a bad driver before people moved here from other places. Just curious, does this mean that the only people that drive well in AZ are the Native Peoples? I only ask because they were here before anyone.

It is the EXACT opposite of what you described. Arizona drivers are the WOOOORSTE and most INCONSIDERATE drivers in the U.S. By the way, I'm working on a piece of legislation to make it a ticketable offense to accelerate a vehicle when another vehicle switches lanes in front of you. [beam]. Aah, can hardly wait. Arizonans WILL start doing things right, you'll have no choice...other than jail, tickets, and looking like a idiot.

Daddy Dummy I’m wondering, how in Gods h3ll would that “piece of legislation” even be enforceable”.

Wow, what a misguided headline to this article. The snowbirds are typically people who drive FAR better than Arizona drivers do. When they leave we're left with nothing but Arizona drivers, which are typically terrible drivers, the worst and most inconsiderate drivers in the country.

yeah we're all a bunch bad drivers in the whole state
