Florida Drivers Ranked Second Best in Nation Based on Several Metrics

Many Florida drivers might be surprised by this piece of news, but a recent study from insurance quote comparison company QuoteWizard indicates the Sunshine State’s drivers are the second-best in the nation, based on several key metrics. In the study, Florida is second behind only Rhode Island.

QuoteWizard’s study was based on five metrics: total accidents in the state, driving under the influence (DUI) arrests, traffic citations issued, speeding tickets issued and traffic fatalities. Had Florida not had such a high number of traffic fatalities, it would have been ranked number one in the study.

Was the study truly accurate?

There are, of course, plenty of problems with such a study. It is, at best, incredibly difficult to quantify exactly what makes massive numbers of people good or bad drivers. Additionally, the study did not include metrics like uninsured motorists, which also would have sunk Florida in the rankings. An estimated 24 percent of drivers in Florida do not have any sort of auto insurance coverage — a number that’s far too high.

According to QuoteWizard, the states with the worst drivers are Utah, California, Virginia, Maine and Nebraska. Rounding out the top five with Rhode Island and Florida are Mississippi, Michigan and Nevada.

If you do find yourself dealing with the aftermath of a crash Florida, it is important to obtain legal representation to seek the compensation you need and deserve. Work with a knowledgeable Bradenton auto accident lawyer at Shapiro, Goldman, Babboni & Walsh to learn more about your options.
