Here’s Where Florida Ranks On The List Of States With Worst Drivers
Where does Florida fall on the list of states with the worst drivers?
Try all the way down at No. 32. But the Sunshine State does, however, rank No. 1 in one category: careless driving.
That’s according to CarInsuranceComparison.com, which recently looked at statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to come up with the rankings. Each state (and the District of Columbia) was rated on five categories including speeding, drunken driving and careless driving.
The latter was defined as pedestrian and bicyclist fatalities per 100,000 population.
Florida scored the best (No. 51) in the speeding category, defined as the percentage of driving fatalities that were speed-related.
Needless to say, however, just because Florida falls relatively low on the overall list, that doesn't mean its residents don't deal with traffic nightmares on a daily basis—rain or shine (but especially when it rains). As some say, if you can drive here, you can drive just about anywhere.
In case you were curious, the state with the worst drivers was Montana, while Minnesota was determined to have the best drivers.
