According to research conducted for an article in Men's Health magazine, St. louis has the worst drivers in a survey of 100 U.S. cities. The study analyzed the rate of fatal crashes; the percentage of fatalities involving alcohol, speeding, or hit and run; and the rate of seatbelt use (from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration). Then we factored in the average number of years between accidents (data from Allstate) and laws on cellphone use while driving (taken from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, and various city governments).
Based on this data, we advise people to be extra careful when driving in St. Louis. Motorists should keep a careful lookout, but don't assume that others around them are doing the same.
