LAS VEGAS (FOX5) – Las Vegas is among the cities with the worst drivers, according to QuoteWizard.

QuoteWizard analyzed two million car insurance quotes from drivers in America’s 70 largest cities for the rankings. The factors looked at included: Accidents, speeding tickets, DUIs, and citations.

According to the rankings, of the top 35 worst driving cities for 2021, Las Vegas ranked number 18. The city ranked 23rd in terms of accident rank, 24th in DUI rank, 12th on speeding rank and 32nd in regard to citation rank.

Birmingham, Alabama was named the best driving city, with St. Louis and Little Rock rounding out the top three. The analysis concluded that St. Louis had significantly more speeding tickets than the winner, which is why it cinched the number two spot.

On the other end, Omaha, Riverside and Bakersfield were named the top three worst driving cities.  

It's not all bad for Nevada drivers however...

Nevada is among the top 10 states with the best roads, according to a new report.

Based on results from a recent survey, ConsumerAffairs found that the Silver State ranks number nine in terms of the states with the best roads.

The survey found that the best roads in the country are located in Kansas, while Rhode Island is home to the worst roads in the nation, according to the results.

According to Consumer Affairs' study, "both the streets and highways in Las Vegas are' "very smooth. They are always keeping up old streets and roads. And they are building more for the expected growth.'"

I personally can attest to this. I'm a delivery driver in the Las Vegas area and for the most part the roads are maintained pretty good. There are some roads that definitely need to be repaved, so its not perfect. Also, I often find myself calling Vegas the "Cone city" because of all the constant construction on the roads...

I've also witnessed a lot of car wrecks lately, so I'm not sure what to make of that other then assuming everyone out here (including myself) drives like a maniac. 

Stay safe out there everyone. Drive safe!
