Utah Is Home To The Nation’s Worst Drivers And Here’s Why
With so much to do and so much to see in the beautiful Beehive State, our residents are frequently hitting the road. We may not consider ourselves to be bad drivers but according to reports from the website
QuoteWizard, we’d be wrong in thinking that. Coming in at the top spot for America’s Worst Drivers by state, Utah residents might want to reconsider how closely they’re keeping their eyes on the road!
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
After closely examining two million data points on national driving records, QuoteWizard named Utah as having the worst drivers in our country.
QuoteWizard (a company that compares car insurance) looked at things such as drunk driving, car crashes and traffic tickets in each state while also sampling data from drivers who use their website.
While Utah is widely known for being a state that has strict liquor laws, strangely the Beehive State was ranked Number 9 amongst the Top 10 states for DUIs.
One of the only positive things to come out of this research was that Utah wasn't amongst other states in our country for having the worst fatalities. So, while our residents may be getting into a considerable amount of accidents, we're at least surviving them.
While our drunk driving statistics aren't positive, but it's Utah's terrible rankings for both accidents and speeding that resulted in it's low ranking.
QuoteWizard also went as far as to see which of America's coasts had the best and worst drivers. To little surprise with Utah on its side, the West Coast ultimately took the crown for having the worst drivers compared to the East. Aside from Utah being the worst state for drivers, California came in at the second spot on this list.
Unfortunately this isn't the first time Utah has been acknowledged for having residents with poor driving skills.
In the past, other websites such as Insure.com and Allstate Insurance acknowledged negative characteristics of Utah's residents when it came to driving. It was just two years ago that Insure.com ranked Utah drivers as being the 10th rudest in our entire country.
Have you heard that our residents aren’t the best of drivers? Speaking of being on the road, if you aren’t too busy driving like a maniac… try taking a trip out to this
