LA ranks number 6 for worst drivers in the country

After QuoteWizard compared the best and worst drivers by state, we wanted to know more about how drivers in America's 75 most populous city metro areas stack up against each other.

The study, conducted by the insurance agency QuoteWizard, analyzed accidents, speeding tickets and arrests to assess driver behaviors and risks on the roads. The worst? Sacramento, Salt Lake City, Riverside (Calif.), Richmond and San Diego.

According to data compiled by QuoteWizard, that's the case. Regardless, Orlando's drivers are statistically excellent - their accident rate was second behind only Detroit.

The Motor City is home to many distinctions, including having the most expensive auto insurance rates in the country.

"Congratulations, people of Detroit", the study says.

Sacramento was propelled to the No. 1 bad driving city title by having the highest traffic citation rate in the nation. "Of course, you may need to take out a second mortgage to afford auto insurance, but that's a whole other story".

Sacramento is the capital of California.

QuoteWizard is not the only group to give Utah drivers poor ratings, although some also give them high marks. Coupled with being close to the top for accidents and DUIs, it's no wonder why Sacramento topped the list. Yes, America's largest tree canopy lines Sacramento's streets, but the streets themselves are filled with unsafe drivers. Fortunately, Sacramento's sorry drivers can always take solace in the fact that they're not from SoCal.
