Survey says.. Columbus drivers pretty much the worst in America

Often times, studies reveal Columbus’ strengths but it’s about time our weak spot got poked.

You know how on your way to work, the radio DJ is constantly talking about accidents “clogging up” your daily commute? That’s because Ohio drivers SUCK. Seriously, a study by QuoteWizard.com confirms it. Columbus is #7 on their list of bad drivers in America.

We sampled incident stats from users of our website with over two million data points from 2016,” QuoteWizard said about their study. “To quantify over driver standards for comparison, we weighted incident counts for each city with its occurrence percentage.”

They looked at four things:

  • accidents
  • speeding tickets
  • DUIs
  • traffic citations

Our other Ohio friends–Cleveland, Cincinnati, and Dayton– all showed up on the 50 worst drivers list. But evidently, no one can handle a motor vehicle worse than the folks in Sacramento, Cali.

Here’s the full list.
