Minnesota Ranked 4th Smartest Drivers

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A new study ranks Minnesota as having the fourth smartest drivers in the country.

A GMAC Insurance Study released Thursday states that one in five drivers on the road today cannot meet the basic requirements to get a driver’s license — that’s roughly 18 percent of American drivers. The study says if those drivers were to take the written driver’s test today, they would not pass.

Kansas was named the most knowledgeable drivers in the country, while Washington, D.C. bumped out New York to take the last spot on the list.

Minnesota came in fourth, with an estimated 5.1 percent who would potentially fail the test today. Our neighbor, Wisconsin, wasn’t as lucky. They came in 12th, with an estimated 8.9 percent who would fail.
