Not the worst after all…
If you’ve lived here even for just a short amount of time, you’ve realized that Utahns aren’t the best drivers. However, according to a new study by bankrate.com Utah drivers might be better than we give ourselves credit.
Is Utah really that safe to drive in? Well, the Beehive state ranked 18th on the 2018 Best States for Drivers list.
Now before you get alarmed this is due to a combination of fairly low driving costs, good driving quality, and moderately safe driving conditions.
The study was compiled using seven measures related to cost, safety and driving quality, including commute time information, traffic fatality data, road condition reports and gas prices. They used the most recently available data for all 50 states from government sources, research organizations and industry groups. And for their analysis, they gave cost a 45 percent weighting, driving quality a 35 percent weighting and safety a 20 percent weighting.
