Colorado driv­ers ranks low on the list when it comes to na­tional driv­ing sta­tis­tics.

Quote Wiz­ard, an on­line re­source for com­par­ing in­surance rates, used a va­ri­ety of sta­tis­tics from state agen­cies and the web­site’s users to rate the na­tion’s driv­ers state by state. And al­though Utah came in as the state with the worst driv­ers, Colorado was eighth-worst, also be­hind Cal­i­for­nia, Vir­ginia, Maine, Ne­braska, South Carolina and North Dakota.

“To quan­tify over­all driver stan­dards for com­par­i­son, we weighted var­i­ous in­ci­dent counts for each state with its oc­cur­rence per­cent­age,” Quote Wiz­ard of­fi­cials said. “The fi­nal rank­ings are a sum of weighted means that is cal­cu­lated from to­tal ac­ci­dents, speed­ing tick­ets, DUIs, ci­ta­tions and fa­tal­i­ties.”
