Maine Has Some of the Worst Drivers in the Country
This may or may not surprise you but Maine has been ranked with some of the worst drivers in the country.
Research done by QuoteWizard looked at things like accidents, drunk driving, speeding and fatalities. The only drivers worse than those in Maine were: Virginia, California and Utah.
The best drivers in the country are from Rhode Island.
According to WMTW.com one factor that keeps Maine near the bottom of the list is the amount of accidents that occur on I-295. Accidents along a stretch of that highway have gone up 32 per cent since the speed limit was raised to 70 mph. In 2015 354 crashes were reports on that one section of I-295. The speed limit on that stretch of highway has since been reduced to 65 mph.
