Where does Massachusetts rank among U.S. states the best and worst drivers?

A study conducted by QuoteWizard.com ranked Massachusetts 33rd among states with worst drivers nationally. The study analyzed more than 2 million insurance quotes and built a composite score based on four incident factors: accidents, speeding tickets, DUIs and citations.

States considered to have the worst drivers had the highest rates of each incident factor, while states with the best drivers had the lowest rates of each incident factor.

Massachusetts was also the third most accident-prone state, trailing only Rhode Island and Maryland.

California was No. 1 for most lead-footed states; Wyoming ranked first among drunkest-driving states; and Alabama topped the list of worst driving habits based on the most citations given.
