Texans are the Worst Drivers in America

The National Coalition for Safer Roads (NCSR) and the Vision Zero Network have collaborated to map over 48,000 speeding fatalities that occurred in the United States between 2012 and 2016. The map shows the top ten worst cities with the highest number of speeding fatalities. The 1st, 2nd and 4th worst cities for speeding fatalities are all in Texas.

When zoomed out the National Speed Fatality Map only shows the top ten worst cities for speeding fatalities. However if you zoom in on a city or town in the USA you can view where all individual speeding fatalities occurred on the city's streets. There were 48,581 lives lost because of speeding drivers between 2012 and 2016. All of them were preventable deaths.

Texans have always featured in the annual top five positions in the worst drivers list compiled by Car Insurance Companion. In 2016 Texas actually managed to top the Worst Drivers by State list. The list is determined based on a number of factors, including the number of fatalities per miles driven, the percentage of fatal crashes involving alcohol and the number of fatalities caused by speeding and careless driving.
