Florida has always had a reputation for having bad drivers... And now there's proof that Florida not only has bad drivers, but the worst drivers in the country.

According to a survey compiled by SmartAsset, a personal-finance company, Florida is the number one state for the most unsafe drivers for the second year in a row.

The website bases its rankings on the number of drivers, DUI arrests, the percentage of drivers insured, tickets and people killed in car crashes.

The study also added that Floridians Google “speeding tickets” and “traffic tickets” more than any other state and that they have the second lowest number of insured drivers in the nation.

The top 10 states with the worst drivers:

  1. Florida
  2. Mississippi
  3. Oklahoma
  4. New Jersey
  5. Delaware
  6. Alabama
  7. Vermont
  8. Tennessee
  9. Texas
  10. Nevada
