MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A new study heralds Minnesotans as the safest drivers in the nation.

The website CarInsuranceComparison.com compiled data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, looking at things like traffic violations, drunk driving, careless driving and deadly crashes.

All of the information was translated into one total score with the highest score, 208, going to the state with the best driving – Minnesota. Last year, Minnesota ranked fourth for best driving.

There is room for improvement, however. The study found Minnesota only came in middle of the road for things like drunk driving.

In case you’re wondering, it’s a tie for the state with the worst drivers: South Carolina and Montana. They scored a 60.
