Things to Remember...
  • Our dedicated team of researchers analyze crash data to make driving safer
  • We conduct hundreds of in-depth studies, some with over 25,000 data points
  • Below you’ll find each state’s rankings according to our most-recnt studies

Our studies include:

#1 – Best Drivers in the US by State

We’ve ranked each state in each of these categories:

  • Fatalities Rate per 100 Million Vehicle Miles Traveled
  • Failure to Obey
  • Drunk Driving
  • Speeding
  • Careless Driving

Rankings for each category are compiled into a “Total Score” and determine the best drivers by state. In short, the best states have the highest scores; the worst have the lowest scores. You can review all of the data here.

#2 – Worst States for Traffic-Related Fatalities

Each state was ranked in these categories

  • Total Fatalities by 100 Million Miles Driven
  • Total Driver Fatalities
  • Total Motorcyclist Fatalities
  • Total Passenger Fatalities
  • Total Pedestrian Fatalities
  • Total Pedacyclist Fatalities

Each state was provided a total score with each category. Higher scores are better; lower scores are worse.

Two additional categories — Fatalities by Vehicle Position and Chances of Being in a Fatal Car Crash — provide information for the six main categories and overall rankings. You can review all of the data here.

#3 – Safest Highway by State

We compiled data in these categories for this study:

  • Interstate Speeding Fatalities per Mile of Interstate
  • Percent of Drivers without Seatbelts
  • Highway Bridges Rated Obsolete or Deficient
  • Highway Deaths per 1,000 Highway Miles Traveled
  • Federal Funding
  • IIHS Death Rates

We rank each state from one to 51 in each category (includes the District of Columbia). The lowest score represents the state with the safest highways and the highest represents the state with the most dangerous highways for that category.
