Cincinnati ranked as one of the worst cities of drivers

| Nov 27, 2018 | Car Accidents

It’s not just your intuition. According to a recent study, Cincinnati ranks as one of the cities with the worst drivers in the United States. For those that have been involved in a car accident with a negligent driver, you may be all-too-familiar with this fact. The interesting part of this study is it accounts for weather, taking into consideration when ranking the cities.

You’d think it would be more difficult to drive in Cincinnati with winter weather than in a city like Palm Springs. That’s what the study by insurance company Allstate sought to neutralize when grading the cities. Cincinnati ranked a terrible 172nd out of the largest 200 cities in the study, solely based on straight accident data. That’s eight spots lower compared to the same study conducted the year previous. Accounting for precipitation, the city’s ranking didn’t improve much, bringing it down to only 167th place.

This essentially means the weather can’t be blamed for the bad drivers in Cincinnati. Data said drivers ‘hard braked’ 19.2 times over 1000 miles traveled. That activity can result in car accidents, maybe not with the driver who initially braked, but with a driver who has to slam on their brakes 4 people behind that driver.

While we can’t change how other drivers behave, we can hold them accountable if they have been careless or negligent and caused car accident injuries. A rear-end collision is a fairly current occurrence in Cincinnati, but it can leave the driver who was rear ended with whiplash and other, more serious injuries. With winter coming, consider the decisions of other drivers while behind the wheel.
