Detroit has some of the worst drivers in the United States, study finds.

Detroit, known for its automotive heritage, received a less flattering distinction: its drivers are terrible and kill a lot of people.

A new study of Forbes Advisor ranks Detroit drivers third worst in the country.

The sobering analysis highlights a range of driving-related metrics, including fatal car crashes, speeding, drunk driving and distracted drivers.

Among the nation’s 50 most populous cities, Detroit ranks second in fatal car crash rate, with 19.76 per 100,000 residents. Only Memphis, Tennessee had a higher rate, at 24.18 per 100,000 residents.

Detroit also ranks second in the rate of fatal car crashes involving a drunk driver (6.54 per 100,000 residents), second in the rate of fatal crashes involving speeding (6.8 per 100,000 residents). 100,000 inhabitants) and second for the rate of people killed in fatal accidents (21.47 per 100,000 inhabitants).

According to the study, Albuquerque, New Mexico, has the worst drivers in the United States, followed by Memphis. Tucson, Arizona, ranked fourth and Kansas City, Missouri, ranked fifth.

It’s no surprise that Detroit has the highest auto insurance rates in the country, although experts disagree on why.

Auto insurance rates in Michigan were supposed to drop significantly after state lawmakers and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer approved legislation in 2019 to combat sky-high premiums. But rates remained high, and between 2023 and 2024, average premiums in Detroit jumped 85%, from $3,067 to $5,687.

“More dangerous driving leads to increased risk and higher insurance rates. » Forbes Advisor reported. “Getting tickets for speeding, running red lights, texting while driving, and other reckless behaviors all increase your risk of accidents and damage claims. This makes you a greater liability in the eyes of insurers.
