Florida Drivers Ranked Among Top Drivers In U.S.
We already know that Florida is home to some of the worst interstates in the U.S. In fact Interstate 4 is the most dangerous highway in the U.S., but new data has determined that Florida drivers are actually among the best drivers across the country.
The data was compiled by the insurance company QuoteWizard and shows that drivers in Florida come in second behind Rhode Island drivers when it comes to the best in the U.S.
Go figure the cities with the highest traffic flow are actually among the cities that helped Florida reach this ranking. Orlando, Hialeah, and Miami were cities that contributed the most.
Now Florida would have been the number one state for best drivers if the traffic fatalities rate had not been so high. QuoteWizard based their rankings on calculations combining total accidents, speeding tickets, DUI’s, citations and fatalities.
Had car insurance been in the factoring for the rankings then Florida would not be in the number two spot. Florida has a 24 percent uninsured rate that would have surely sunk the state.
Still pretty good considering the size of Florida as a whole. Rhode Island is a merely 48 miles long and 37 miles wide and is considered one of the smallest states in the union.
The worst drivers were in Utah, California and Virginia. Here are the rankings:
Now just imagine if Florida didn’t have the most deadliest highway, with lower fatalities Florida might have moved into the top ranking for best drivers in the U.S.
