Study: Tennessee drivers are second worst in the country
Five of the top 10 states with the worst drivers are in the South, according to the study.
NASHVILLE (WSMV) - Tennessee has the second worst drivers in the country, according to a new study by Smart Asset.
Tennessee came in fourth in 2017.
"No one wants to be ranked in the top five in anything negative, so to be number two is pretty bad," said Pamela Armour.
The study based its findings off four metrics: percent of drivers with insurance, number of DUIs per driver, average number of deaths per miles driver and how often residents Google terms like traffic ticket or speeding ticket.
