Kentucky has some great drivers, and some not so great drivers. I’m sure at some point we all feel like our community has the worst drivers in the state. Like myself, you might be correct, depending on where you live. This article is all about Kentucky’s worse drivers, or those who suffer an extremely high number of accident related coincidences.
