SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--With summer travel season now at-hand, QuoteWizard (https://quotewizard.com), an online insurance comparison marketplace, today released a proprietary study ranking the best and worst driving cities in the nation covering the country’s 75 most populous metropolitan areas.
From worst to best, here are the rankings of all 75 cities, along with the full study: https://quotewizard.com/news/posts/the-best-and-worst-drivers-by-city. Among its findings, QuoteWizard found that the nation’s best drivers are in Detroit, Providence, and Orlando, while the three worst driving cities are Sacramento, Salt Lake City, and Riverside.
In addition to providing an indication of how cities rate, the study also addresses some longstanding rivalries, such as:
New York vs. Boston;
LA vs. Bay Area;
Dallas vs. Houston;
St. Louis vs. Kansas City.
“If you’ve ever been driving in another city, get cut off on the freeway and think to yourself, ‘Oh, it figures,’ this study may be for you,” said Adam Johnson, QuoteWizard content manager. “QuoteWizard analyzed millions of datapoints on drivers from throughout the US and what we found provides a pretty interesting and sometimes surprising snapshot of the best and worst drivers in America.”
QuoteWizard sampled incident data (with more than 2 million data points) from drivers who used its services. To quantify overall driver standards for comparison, QuoteWizard then weighted various incident counts for each state with its occurrence percentage. The final rankings are a sum of weighted means which is calculated from total accidents, speeding tickets, DUI, citations.
