*LIST* The Best & Worst Driving States In The U.S.


We all may think we’re excellent drivers, but with the amount of accidents we see on the road, that’s obviously not true. Some states have reputations for having the worst drivers on the road, while others may have a better record, and now a new report is revealing the truth about folks behind the wheel.

  • QuoteWizard has just come out with their fifth annual list of the Best and Worst Drivers By State.
  • They looked at two million insurance quotes, and created a score based on four driving incident factors:
    • Accidents
    • Speeding tickets
    • DUIs
    • Citations
  • Based on these criteria, Wyoming is the state with the worst drivers in the country.
  • Meanwhile, West Virginia was deemed the state with the best drivers in the country.
