QuoteWizard, a nationwide network of licensed insurance agents representing companies and independent agents, sampled incident stats from users of its website with more than 2 million data points from 2016. Among its findings, QuoteWizard found that the nation's best drivers are in Detroit, Providence, and Orlando, while the three worst driving cities are Sacramento, Salt Lake City, and Riverside.
According to data compiled by QuoteWizard, that's the case.
The rankings of the best and worst drivers in the country came as a sum of weighted means calculated by looking at number of accidents, speeding tickets, DUIs and citations, such as running a red light and using a cellphone while driving.
The Motor City is home to many distinctions, including having the most expensive auto insurance rates in the country.More news: Nicola Sturgeon: Second vote on Scottish independence 'reset'

- Apparently Detroit drivers are the best in the country, according to a recently released study.
At the other end of the spectrum, Detroit drivers were ranked the best because it "has the lowest accident rate and second-lowest amount of speeding citations". Congratulations, people of Detroit.
Sacramento is the capital of California. That's right, Sacramento: you've earned the dubious honor of being America's worst driving city.
QuoteWizard is not the only group to give Utah drivers poor ratings, although some also give them high marks. "They're also close to the top for accidents and DUIs, at fourth". Fortunately, Sacramento's sorry drivers can always take solace in the fact that they're not from SoCal.
