(PCM) Tis’ the season for holiday travel and it has now been revealed which states harbor some of the worst drivers in the country. One would think that states such as New York or New Jersey would be located somewhere near the top of the list, however it has actually been revealed that both Texas and Louisiana have tied for first place on the list of state with the worst drivers.

The worst drivers study used 2016 data that was collected from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and analyzed statistics regarding crash fatalities in a multitude of categories, including those that involved drunk driving, careless driving, speeding, and failure to obey basic traffic laws. Once the data was complied they were able to create a list of states with the worst drivers.

While Texas and Louisiana placed first, South Carolina came in third, North Dakota was fourth and Delaware rounded out the top five coming in fifth place. Also included in the top ten were New Mexico, Nevada,Alabama, Arizona and Montana.

States such as Minnesota, Vermont, Virginia, Iowa and Rhode Island were listed as some of the safest driving states and surprisingly New Jersey came in at number nine on the safest driving state list.

According to AAA.com more than 43 million drivers will travel the roadways during the holiday season, so please remember to always use caution and pay attention when behind the wheel not just during the holidays, but whenever you need to travel away from home.
