ALTOONA, Pa. (WTAJ) — Sorry “Altoids,” it looks like you’re the worst drivers in Pennsylvania with State College not far behind, a new study shows.
The study comes from QuoteWizard where they analyzed data across the Commonwealth to find the cities with the best — and the worst — drivers.
The QuoteWizard driver report analyzed accidents, citations, speeding tickets and DUIs in each city. They also sorted through Federal Highway Administration data on road and bridge quality to determine the number of roads and bridges in “poor” or “unacceptable” condition.
Sorry, WTAJ viewers, but we didn’t get a single spot in the top 10 best drivers. Here’s how the best and worst lists shaped up:
Best Drivers in Pennsylvania
- Penn Hills
Worst Drivers in Pennsylvania
- Cranberry Township
- Bethel Park
- Upper Darby
- State College
It’s no secret to Pennsylvanians that roads and bridges might be in a bit of a rough condition. QuoteWizard shows that the potholes and “failing road infrastructure” costs Pa. drivers an average of $620 a year.
