QuoteWizard has published their annual report showing which cities have the worst drivers in America. This year, Columbus ranked as the 4th worst driving city in the country.

QuoteWizard analyzed data from millions of insurance quotes from drivers in the top 75 cities in the country.

They evaluated cities on four factors to determine overall driver quality and took a composite ranking of overall incidents, which include accidents, speeding tickets, DUIs and citations.

Cities considered the worst drivers had the highest rate of incidents among drivers.

Here are the top 10 worst driving cities in America:

  1. Portland, Oregon
  2. Boise, Idaho
  3. Virginia Beach, Virginia
  4. Columbus, Ohio
  5. Sacramento, California
  6. Salt Lake City, Utah
  7. Cleveland, Ohio
  8. Denver, Colorado
  9. San Francisco, California
  10. Richmond, Virginia

This is what QuoteWizard wrote about Columbus:

"A perennial top 10 finisher on the worst driving list, Columbus keeps it’s reign on the fourth worst spot for the second year in a row. Year over year, Columbus isn’t spectacularly bad in any one category, just consistently poor in all categories. Top 15 worst in accidents, speeding tickets and DUIs will drag the overall ranking down. Columbus will take the crown as the worst driving big city in the state of OH, but not far behind is Cleveland at No. 7."

Dayton cracked the top 20 in the list of the worst driving cities in America, checking in at No. 17.

Below is a list of the top 10 best cities.

  1. Detroit, Michigan
  2. Louisville, Kentucky
  3. Chicago, Illinois
  4. Miami, Florida
  5. Grand Rapids, Michigan
  6. Little Rock, Arkansas
  7. St. Louis, Missouri
  8. New Orleans, Louisiana
  9. Fort Myers, Florida
  10. Lexington, Kentucky
