Alabama among top 5 states for worst drivers

Traffic citations, DUI infractions, tickets for speeding and careless driving and fatality rates per 100 million miles traveled were looked at to determine that list.


According to a report released today, Alabama is among the top five states with the worst drivers. The report from carinsurancecomparison.com looked at data from the National Highway Safety Administration and various driving associations.

"They have no respect for anybody; no patience, constantly horns blowing, no turn signals... It's awful," said Monica Gulley.

She says she's on the road all day for her job in Dothan and sees first hand careless and dangerous driving.

"They're not paying attention. There are a lot of people with a one tract mind. I do see a lot of people on their phone talking texting," said Gulley.

Distracted driving is far too common especially on the circle, she says.

"They leave home in a hurry putting on makeup, combing their hair, trying to drive... This is just not the way to drive. You're supposed to have all that done before you leave home,” said driver, Shelton Strickland.

Traffic citations, DUI infractions, tickets for speeding and careless driving and fatality rates per 100 million miles traveled were looked at to determine that list.
