Best and Worst Drivers in the US for 2018: QuoteWizard Study Ranks Nations 75 Most Populous Metro Areas

With jam-packed roads associated with the summer travel season now upon
us, QuoteWizard (,
an online insurance comparison marketplace, today released a proprietary
study ranking the best and worst drivers in the nation, covering the
country’s 75 most populous metropolitan areas.

From worst to best, here are the rankings of drivers in all 75 cities,
along with the full study:
Among its findings, QuoteWizard found that the nation’s best drivers are
in Orlando, Miami, El Paso, Detroit, and Little Rock, while the worst
driving cities are Omaha, Riverside, Sacramento, Columbus, and the Bay

“Most people think America’s worst drivers are the ones who live in
their city,” says Adam Johnson, QuoteWizard content manager. “But that’s
not always the case. We analyzed millions of data points on drivers
throughout the US and what we found provides an interesting and
sometimes surprising snapshot of the best and worst drivers in America.”


QuoteWizard sampled incident data (with more than one million data
points) from drivers who used its services. To quantify overall driver
quality for comparison, we weighted incident counts for each city with
its frequency. The final rankings are a sum of weighted means calculated
from total accidents, speeding tickets, DUIs, and citations.
