It's been confirmed—Floridians are the worst drivers in the U.S.

SmartAsset, a personal finance company, conducted a study looking at the number of drivers in each state, DUI arrests, people killed, percentage of insured drivers, and Google trends for speeding tickets. 



So what put Florida at the top of the ranking? 

Floridians have the second lowest number of insured drivers in the nation at just 76.2 percent. We also Google about speeding and traffic tickets, a lot. In fact, we conduct more searches than any other state in the U.S. 



Following Florida in this list of terrible drivers were Mississippi and Oklahoma. Check out the ranking below.
