Montana again cracks top 10 "worst drivers" by state list

Montana is among this year's list of the states with the worst drivers, according to an insurance website.

The website, carinsurancecomparison.com, used information published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration based on a study that focused on fatal car crashes and their causes to compile the list.

The website notes that while traffic-related fatalities have decreased 67% since 1975, "we still have a long way to go for safe driving."

Louisiana and Texas tied for the number one "worst drivers" state, with South Carolina claiming the third spot. 

Montana claimed the number 10 spot, down from the number 1 spot last year.

Moving from first place last year to tenth place this year, Montana seems to have done a lot to improve the quality of driving on the road. The state came in above average for Careless Driving but still has some work to do taking third place for Fatalities Rate per 100 Million Vehicle Miles Traveled.

Here’s hoping that next year, Montana will improve even more and won’t show up on our list.
