South Carolina Ranks Third Worst Drivers in Nation
The annual report by carinsurancecomparison.com ranked South Carolina drivers third worst in the nation using data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. That is not the only thing South Carolina is leading in; the state also has some of the highest instances of roadway fatalities and reckless driving in the country. This information is not exactly new to the state. South Carolina has placed among the top five worst drivers for the last 4 years in a row. In fact, SC ranked first in the nation for roadway fatalities in 2014 and remains in the top 10 ranking for drunk driving. As a result, drivers in South Carolina increase their chance of experiencing a car accident just by driving on state roads.
