10 States with the Worst Drivers [2022 Study]

from Car Insurance Comparison, March, 2022

On average, the death rate in the 10 states with the worst drivers is 1.34 per 100 million vehicle miles traveled.  The states with the worst drivers have high rates of fatal car accidents involving speeding, drunk driving, careless driving, and breaking traffic laws.

You know them when you see them — swerving in and out of lanes, flying down the highway at 100 miles-per-hour, unaware of cyclists and pedestrians, driving erratically down the road.

They are the worst drivers, and they pose a hazard to everyone on the road. In this 2022 version of our annual study — the 10 states with the worst drivers — we bring you the states that have the most of these erratic types on the road.


Our researchers analyzed the five bad driving behavior categories:

  1. Car accident death rate
  2. Failure to obey traffic laws
  3. Careless driving
  4. Drunk driving
  5. Speeding

These categories contributed to each state’s ranking for the worst drivers.

In the category of careless driving, the fatality rate of pedestrians was 2.36 per capita and .28 for cyclists.
