- Arizona Takes 6th Place on Bad Drivers List
A list of U.S. states with the worst drivers has been compiled by The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA.) While you may think Arizona drivers are the best, you may be surprised to hear that Arizona ranked number six on the list.
Ranking in the top ten on such a list is cause for concern, as harmful driving behaviors can impact both the negligent driver as well as other motorists.
For example, texting while driving or driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol are known harmful driving behaviors that can cause death or serious injury to drivers and other motorists on the roadways.
By compiling this list, NHTSA administrators hope to create awareness about the importance of safe driving practices.
The following are the top six U.S. states with the worst drivers:
Montana – Ranked 20th for speeding, Montana ranked number one for the most fatalities per 100 million miles traveled. Dangerous driving is rampant in the Treasure State, and it beat South Carolina for the number one position on the list, making it number one for worst driving overall.
South Carolina and New Mexico -In a state tie, South Carolina and New Mexico both placed second on the list. South Carolina came in third for drunk driving, while New Mexico was fifth for careless driving. New Mexico also placed sixteenth in the “failure to obey” category.
Texas – Skipping third place, as South Carolina and New Mexico tied for second, Texas ranked fourth overall and came in sixth for drunk driving.
Louisiana – Ranking first for failure to obey, Louisiana also placed 33rd for speeding, and is number three for careless driving.
Arizona – Taking third place for careless driving and seventh for failure to obey, Arizona fell eight spots from last year’s overall ranking and landed in the number six position. While Arizona ranked 47th as the best state for not driving while impaired, it could definitely improve in many other areas.
