Mississippi has the worst drivers in the U.S. for the third consecutive year, followed by Nevada and Tennessee.

The personal finance company creates its rankings based on metrics like percentage of insured drivers, DUI’s, fatal crashes and the frequency of Google searches for speeding tickets.

“Massachusetts performs best,” SmartAsset said on its website.

“Though people who have to drive every day in Boston may disagree, Massachusetts has the fewest bad drivers in the nation, according to our study. The Bay State ranks within the best 10 states for three of the four metrics we considered, including having the fewest fatalities in the study per 100 million vehicle miles driven.”
