Miami has some of best drivers in America, study claims

Buckle your set belts for this one, folks.

Miami, the Magic City, is considered one of the best driving cities in America, according to a new study.

QuoteWizard published a new study ranking the best and worst driving cities in America, ranking 75 cities, and Miami was fourth best behind Detroit, Providence and Orlando!

The final rankings are sum of weighted means calculated from these parameters:

  • Accidents
  • Speeding tickets
  • DUIs
  • Citations (running a red light, using a cellphone while driving, etc.)

Using this data, QuoteWizard ranked each US city from worst to best.

Top Driving Cities in U.S.

  1. Detroit
  2. Providence
  3. Orlando
  4. Miami
  5. Little Rock
  6. Allentown
  7. Baton Rouge
  8. Las Vegas
  9. Tulsa
  10. Birmingham

The worst driving cities were Sacramento, Salt Lake City, Riverside, Richmond and San Diego.

Sacramento is the capital of California. They're also the capital of bad drivers. That's right, Sacramento: you've earned the dubious honor of being America's worst driving city. Sacramento finds itself in first due to the highest rate of traffic citations in the country. They're also close to the top for accidents and DUI's, at fourth. Yes, America's largest tree canopy lines Sacramento's streets, but the streets themselves are filled with dangerous drivers. Perhaps Sacramentans should consider commuting by boat on Sacramento's numerous waterways, ala Venice. Fortunately, Sacramento's sorry drivers can always take solace in the fact that they're not from SoCal.
