TAMPA (WFLA) – The state of Florida may be known for sunshine and amazing sports teams, but now the state may also be known for terrible drivers.
According to a new study conducted by Finder, Florida cracked the top 10 list of worst drivers in America. The top 10 states with the worst drivers have a few things in common — their drivers take many different risks and most are located in the south.
The findings state that Florida ranked number 10 in 2020 due to the state’s average percentage of DUIs, uninsured drivers and fatal accidents.
The study found that Florida led the nation in percentage of uninsured drivers at 26.7 percent, no other state was above 24 percent.
The study also shows that residents of Nevada rose to the top for the most traffic ticket searches, with California and Florida falling just behind.
Finder looked at information from the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and Google Trends to conduct its findings.
