A new study found that California drivers are some of the worst in the U.S. Are you surprised? Probably not. The study factored in fatalities, speeding tickets, DUIs and other violations and then accounted for population. When broken down:
- We have the second most DUIs
- We come in at number seven for accidents
- Nine for speeding tickets
- And have the fifth most citations
Why do we have so many accidents?
When put together that makes California the second worst state for drivers in the nation. One reason for the high amount of bad drivers could be the length of travel that most people drive to get to work. Many employees in San Francisco and Sacramento choose to live a few hours away from their job. While the jobs might be lucrative in the city they still can't foot the bill for a house there.
