Tennessee has the second worst drivers in the country, according to a new study by Smart Asset. Tennessee came in fourth in the same study back in 2017.
The study based its findings off four metrics: percent of drivers with insurance, number of DUIs per driver, average number of deaths per miles driven, and how often residents Google terms like traffic ticket or speeding ticket. Tennessee was ranked 19th for DUI arrests and 16th for deadly crashes.
Five of the top 10 states with the worst drivers are in the south, according to the study. Smart Asset says these states tend to have the highest fatality rates and lowest auto insurance rates.
