Which state has the worst drivers?
New rankings by the website CarInsuranceComparison.com have Alabama in the top 10. Our state is #5, to be exact.
USA Today reported that the website listed Louisiana in the number one spot and South Carolina and Mississippi followed respectively.
The findings were reportedly collected based on data on fatality rates per 100 million miles traveled, traffic citations, DUI infractions and tickets for speeding and careless driving. The website collected data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the National Motorists Association and Mothers Against Drunk Driving.
In 2011, a ranking by GMAC Insurance found that the worst drivers in the country were in Washington, D.C.
The country’s best drivers are in Fort Collins, Colo., according to insurer Allstate’s ninth annual “America’s Best Drivers Report,” released in August.
