It’s no secret Atlanta traffic can be frustrating, but how are the drivers?
QuoteWizard, an online insurance comparison marketplace, recently conducted a study to find out. For its annual “Best and Worst Drivers” list, its experts analyzed more than two million data points from the Federal Highway Administration and the drivers that used its services from 2018.
They then grouped the information into categories based on five incidents: accidents, speeding tickets, DUIs, citations and fatalities.
After analyzing the results, the researchers found that Maine and South Carolina had the No. 1 and No. 2 worst drivers in the country, respectively.
On the other hand, Michigan had the No. 1 best drivers in America, followed by Mississippi and then Oklahoma.
How did Georgia fare?
The Peach State had the No. 15 worst drivers, dropping four spots from 2017. It was No. 15 in 2016.
