California has low DUI / drunk driving and fatality rates compared with rest of the country, attorneys are told
California does not rank very high in fatalities and DUI / drunk driving, keeping California out of the Top 10 States for United States' Worst Drivers.
The insurance website determined the states with the worst drivers based on:
—Fatalities Rate per 100 Million Vehicle Miles Traveled —Failure to Obey (Traffic Signals + Seat Belts) —Drunk Driving or DUI —Tickets —Careless Driving
California ranked 45th in careless driving and 43rd in tickets — with one being the best and 50 being the worst — both of which contributed to it landing a spot in the top 20. But the low number of drunk driving and DUI incidents - together with relatively low fatality rates - kept California out of the Top 10, San Diego DUI lawyers relate.
