It may be beyond popular opinion in neighboring New Hampshire, but according to an insurance and finance website drivers from the Bay State may not be worthy of the Granite State's ire.
Smartasset has ranked the country's worst automobile drivers and the much maligned Massachusetts driver ranks far below most of the others. The site ranked drivers on four criteria: percentage of insured, DUI per thousand drivers, deaths per thousand drivers and Google trends on driving tickets.
The bottom line for Massachusetts? The state ranked 48 out of 50. (That's a good thing.)
Vermont didn't fare so well - being the only New England state in the site's top ten. It leads the nation in DUIs with 50 per thousand drivers. They also report that Vermont drivers have the lowest percentage of deaths resulting from drunk driving incidents, at 20 percent.
Smartasset ranks Florida as the state with the second lowest number of insured drivers, Additionally, residents Googled "speeding tickets" and "traffic tickets" more often than drivers in any other state.
