Missouri in top ten list for worst drivers

Residents in Missouri can be quite concerned about their safety and the safety of their family members when on the roads and highways. This concern is valid because even with strong laws in place, drivers are still able to continue to make reckless and negligent choices that put not only themselves but other in harm's way.

Over the past few years, a report has been put out each year by Car Insurance Comparison that ranks the safety of drivers in each state. Missouri has experienced a lot of changes in its position in this report. In 2015, the state was the 16th worst nationally but then improved substantially to number 27 the following year. The improvement, it semeed, was short lived as Missouri came in at the number 19 position in 2017 and, most recently, claimed the 10th spot in the list of the top ten states with the worst drivers.

The report evaluates five key factors in making its ranking decisions. These factors leverage data on drunk driving, speeding, careless driving, vehicular death rate and the traffic law violations. adds that in 2018, more than 1,600 vehicle accidents were recorded from January 1 to the time just before the Christmas holiday. Those accidents led to 541 injuries and seven fatalities. In that same time period, 92 people were arrested for driving while intoxicated. The other states in the top ten list for 2018 were Alaska, South Carolina, New Mexico, Louisiana, North Carolina, Nevada, Montana, Arizona and Texas. These are listed in order from number one, which is the worst, to number nine.
