And to think the two states I ride in the most (NC & SC) are two of the top ten. Guess I better keep my insurance a lot longer.

North Carolina needs to pay more attention behind the wheel, according to CarInsuranceComparison.com, which ranks the Tar Heel State tied for seventh among the worst-driving states in America.
Data from 2012 was used to compile the list, which ranks states on the following metrics: Fatality rates per 100 million miles traveled, citations for failure to obey traffic signals and seat belt laws, DUI infractions, and tickets for speeding and careless driving. Data was collected from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the National Motorists Association and Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD).
In 2012, MADD counted 402 drunk-driving deaths in North Carolina.
According to the list, the worst drivers in the country live in Louisiana, which also topped the list last year.
Here are the worst 10:
2. South Carolina
7. North Carolina (tied)
10. South Dakota
