Utah Drivers Are Getting Better, But We’re Still Amongst The Worst In The Nation

If you’ve lived in Utah for very long, you might have plenty of complaints about the drivers here. From impatient drivers who weave through downtown streets to clueless folks busy texting on their cellphones on I-15, this can be a scary place to drive.

The website QuoteWizard.com completes a study every year to determine where the best and worst drivers in the country live. In 2016, Salt Lake City, Utah came in number one as the worst in the nation. In 2017, we did a little better, placing 3rd in the nation for worst drives, and things were really looking up in 2018 when Salt Lake City fell all the way to 9th worst. The latest results just came out for 2019, and let’s just say that there’s certainly no reason to celebrate.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.
