DENVER (CBS4) – If you hate your fellow Coloradans when it comes to driving, there could be a good reason why.

Data from the Federal Highway Administration, compiled by QuoteWizard, ranks Colorado as the eighth-worst state for drivers.

“To quantify overall driver standards for comparison, we weighted various incident counts for each state with its occurrence percentage,” QuoteWizard posted on their site. “The final rankings are a sum of weighted means which calculated from total accidents, speeding tickets, DUI, citations, and fatalities.

  1. From Ogden to So. of Provo on I-15, Utah is just frightening. Speeders, cut you off, slam brakes in front of you. Those people can be nice as can be in person, but get them in a car and they change personalities so fast…and so AGGRESSIVE and MEAN.

    Congrats CBS Denver for spreading fake news / click bait! Anyone with a fleeting grasp of statistics that reads their methodology would know that.
