Worst Drivers By State
Using the most reliable source on the matter, the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, we collected the data to rank all 51 areas of the U.S. by the following five main categories:
Fatality Rate: – The total number of traffic deaths for every 100 million vehicle miles traveled.
Failure to Obey: – The number of road fatalities involving failure to use safety restraints and individuals ignoring traffic safety devices and driving illegally with an invalid license.
Drunk Driving – The number of fatal crashes involving a driver impaired by alcohol.
Speeding: – The number of driving deaths involving a driver who was speeding.
Careless Driving: – The number of pedestrians and pedalcyclists (usually bicyclists) killed by motorists for every 100 thousand residents.
The rankings for the above five categories were totaled for 51 final scores. The lowest scores (highest cumulative rankings) belonged to the areas with the worst drivers in our nation.
