Sacramento Tops List Of Worst Drivers In The Nation

Sacramento Tops List Of Worst Drivers In The Nation”

That's according to a new study by QuoteWizard, an online insurance comparison marketplace. The rankings were determined by the "sum of weighted means calculated from these parameters: accidents, speeding tickets, DUIs, citations (running a red light, using a cellphone while driving, etc.)".

The insurance website QuoteWizard issued a list Tuesday, ranking the 75 most populous cities based on how well their residents drive.

Earlier this year, INRIX's 2016 Global Traffic Scorecard revealed that Detroit has the best traffic among American metropolitan areas with more than 3 million people.

The best drivers are in Detroit; Providence, Rhode Island; Orlando, Florida; Miami; and Little Rock, Arkansas, according to the study.

Translation: California has a lot of room for improvement, with half of the top ten spots going to them for the worst drivers in the country. Drivers in West Valley City ranked No. 87. Detroit's drivers came out on top. Here's what the authors had to say: The Motor City is home to many distinctions, including having the most expensive auto insurance rates in the country. Despite a topsy-turvy economy and rapidly transforming city scape, your citizens are great drivers. "QuoteWizard analyzed millions of datapoints on drivers from throughout the USA and what we found provides a pretty interesting and sometimes surprising snapshot of the best and worst drivers in America".
