Seattle-based insurance comparison shopping site QuoteWizard wanted to find out where the best and worst drivers in the nation are located, and found that drivers on the East Coast tend to be 13 percent better drivers than those on the West Coast.

To find this information, QuoteWizard paired incident data from its users (with two million data points) with state fatality information from the Federal Highway Administration (FHA) to determine the best and worst driving states in the nation, then ranked all 50 states based on the findings. To quantify overall driver standards for comparison, QuoteWizard weighted various incident counts for each state with its occurrence percentage. The final rankings are a sum of weighted means that calculated from total accidents, speeding tickets, DUIs, citations and fatalities.

According to QuoteWizard, the top three states with the best drivers are Rhode Island, Florida and Mississippi. The top three states with the worst drivers are Utah, California and Virginia. To see the full ranking, click here.
