A recent study conducted by Consumer Affairs has identified the cities in the United States with the highest concentration of dangerous drivers. The analysis examined crash data from the U.S. Department of Transportation and the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration’s Fatality Analysis Reporting System.
Factors such as crash fatalities, fatalities due to bad driving, positive blood alcohol content, and speeding were taken into account to determine the rankings. Additionally, the study also highlighted the cities with the safest drivers. Let’s explore the findings and the cities that topped both lists.

According to ConsumerAffairs’ analysis, the cities with the worst drivers were primarily located in the lower Midwest, Southeast, and Southwest regions of the United States. Tennessee had the highest representation among the top 20 cities, with four cities making the list.
