SALT LAKE CITY – Salt Lake City drivers ranked at the top of a recent driving list… but it’s not a list you want to be on.

A recent analysis looked across the country and determined that Utah drivers are some of the worst in the nation.

Accidents, speeding tickets, DUIs and citations were all part of the study by QuoteWizard, an internet marketing service.

The group combined 2016 data from 75 cities to get 2 million driver data points which claim to show where driving is the worst of the worst.
