Cutter Law P.C.


How do California drivers compare to other drivers in the United States in terms of safety?

According to one study, not very well.

QuoteWizard, an insurance comparison website, recently ranked the best and worst drivers in the U.S. by state. A variety of data points were analyzed, including accidents, speeding tickets, drunk driving incidents, roadway fatalities, and other citations (including cell phone use while driving, running a red light, etc.)

California drivers were ranked the worst in the United States, followed by Minnesota, Utah, South Carolina, and Washington. In 2016, California was named the second worst state.

What state's drivers ranked the highest? Drivers from Rhode Island were ranked the best drivers, followed by Florida, Mississippi, Michigan, and Arkansas.

Sacramento and its drivers were called out specifically. QuoteWizard recently ranked Sacramento as the worst driving city in the U.S. The city has the highest rate of traffic citations in the U.S., and also ranks high for number of accidents and drunk driving citations.

It is important to remember that an accident can happen anytime, anywhere. Drivers everywhere have a responsibility to drive safely, obey traffic laws, and minimize distractions behind the wheel.
