Where are the worst drivers?
We’re not the worst, but close to it. California is the fifth highest among the states with the worst drivers.
SmartAsset's analysis evaluated three metrics to determine the states with the worst drivers: the percentage of insured drivers within the state, the number of DUI arrests per every thousand drivers and the number of fatalities per 100,000 miles driven.
California has the 13th-highest number of DUI arrests per 1,000 drivers, with 4.71. This is an increase from 4.59 in 2019. Additionally, its percentage of uninsured drivers is relatively low at just under 85 percent.
Worse than California in the top 5 are Mississippi, Nevada, Tennessee and Florida.
SmartAsset’s data was from the year 2020.
