Minnesota is good at a lot of things: passive-aggressive comments, putting every type of food on a stick, and day drinking on the lake. However, one Minnesota city doesn't measure up when it comes to driving.

According to QuoteWizard analysts, Minnesotans could be doing much better on the roads, especially those who live in Minneapolis.

Workers at QuoteWizard analyzed two million car insurance quotes from drivers in America's seventy largest cities. To determine overall driver quality cities were evaluated on four factors.

Study Factors:

  • Accidents
  • Speeding Tickets
  • DUIs
  • Citations (running a red light, using a cellphone while driving, etc)

I hate to break it to you guys, but Minneapolis is No. 19 on the list of worst drivers. 

Here's the breakdown:

Minneapolis is the 48th worst for accidents, 22nd for speeding, 16th for citations, and 7th worst for DUIs. Mixing all that together, we land at No. 19.

All I can say is at least we aren't in the top ten! Though, we have room for plenty of improvement.

Top 10 Worst Driving Cities:

  1. Omaha, NE
  2. Riverside, CA
  3. Bakersfield, CA
  4. Columbus, OH
  5. Richmond, VA
  6. Fresno, CA
  7. Sacramento, CA
  8. Salt Lake City, UT
  9. Austin, TX
  10. Baltimore, MD

I say our goal for this year is to make the best drivers list! Is that shooting too high? Maybe...

Top 10 Best Driving Cities:

  1. Birmingham, AL
  2. St. Louis, MO
  3. Little Rock, AR
  4. New Orleans, LA
  5. Memphis, TN
  6. Louisville, KY
  7. Detroit, MI
  8. Atlanta, GA
  9. Baton Rouge, LA
  10. Grand Rapids, MI

Minnesotans! Put down the phones, and get your eyes on the road because we've got some work to do!
