That sounded better than three of the top four cities in America with the worst drivers are in Florida. Still, it’s not a good statement regarding safety on Florida’s roads.

In a project from clevermove.com, a list of the U.S. cities with the worst drivers was put together.

They looked at the details that includes: number of traffic fatalities, alcohol-related fatalities, number days of rain/snow each year and how many insured drivers there are in the state. Fun statisticians looked at the data, and the list was put together.

Floridians, hold on tightly to that “oh, @#$! bar” in the car when you see this.

When it came to the top 50 cities that were measured, the #1 on the ‘best drivers’ end of the list was: New York City.

Grab that bar tighter… this one may sting. Here are the cities from Florida that made the list and where they landed (out of 50 cities):

  • 24 Miami

    Miami has the fifth FEWEST DUI deaths. However, Miami has among the highest number of rainy days in the country of the cities on the list. Insurance premiums are the highest in the Florida cities on the list, at $3,938, compared to the national average of $2,230.

  • 3 Orlando

    Being in Florida means more than the average rainfall, 10th most in the country,. Orlando also shares the uninsured rate with other cities in the state of Florida at 20.4%. Tourists from around the world fill the streets with people unfamiliar with the area.

  • 1 (worst) Jacksonville

    Not a list where you want to be #1. Jacksonville was 3rd in fatalities and #1 in most DUI deaths. Nationally, the uninsured rate is 13.2%. In Jacksonville, it’s 20.40%.

  • How did this compare to a survey?

    Surprisingly, when asked in a poll, the worst city with the worst drivers was Los Angeles. When you go by the actual stats used, they were among the top 10 best drivers. Strangely enough, the same survey of 1,000 Americans has Los Angeles as the city for the worst drivers as well.
