Georgians aren't the worst drivers in the nation, but they're certainly up there.
In a new ranking of the best and worst drivers by state conducted by insurance resource QuoteWizard, Georgia ranked No. 15 in the country.
To come up with the 50-state ranking, QuoteWizard analysts sampled incident data (more than two million data points) with fatality information from the Federal Highway Administration.
Analysts also looked into speeding tickets, DUIs, citations and fatalities, weighing various incidents for each state with its occurrence percentage.
The worst drivers in the nation commute in Utah, followed by California and Virginia. Rhode Island, Florida and Mississippi have the best drivers in the country, according to this ranking.
