Sacramento drivers ranked as worst in the entire US

A study by Allstate Insurance past year ranked Salt Lake City drivers a mediocre 78th best among the nation's 200 largest cities for safety. Kansas City, Kan., has the best drivers, according to the report.

The company says Sacramento has the highest rate of traffic citations in the country.


The rankings of the best and worst drivers in the country came as a sum of weighted means calculated by looking at number of accidents, speeding tickets, DUIs and citations, such as running a red light and using a cellphone while driving. Perhaps the notorious "Florida Man" avoids Orlando's roadways, because they're QuoteWizard's third best driving city.

California takes up half of the site's top ten rankings with Riverside, San Diego, Los Angeles and Bakersfield joining Sacramento. Detroit has the lowest accident rate and second lowest amount of speeding citations according to our data. The list consists of the 75 most populous metro areas in the U.S.


- Apparently Detroit drivers are the best in the country, according to a recently released study. Drivers in West Valley City ranked No. 87. "Of course, you may need to take out a second mortgage to afford auto insurance, but that's a whole other story".

Yes, there are plenty of things to complain about - insurance rates, potholes, construction, lane closures, MI lefts - but Detroit-area drivers seem to have it better than most cities in the country when it comes to quality drivers.
