With winter weather hitting the region, it’s important to remember driver safety – and two New England states may need to remember driver safety more than others, according to a new report.
Safewise recently released a report breaking down which states are the best at driving in inclement conditions, including snow and rain, and which ones are the worst.
Vermont drivers are the worst at driving in snowy conditions, according to data analysed by Safewise. Maine drivers are not only bad at driving in the snow, but they also face dangerous conditions when driving in rain, according to the report. The Pine Tree State is the eighth most dangerous state for driving in the rain, and the fifth for driving in the snow.
Meanwhile, Rhode Island made list with the safest conditions on the road for both rain and snow overall.
States with the most snowfall don’t necessarily prove to be the most dangerous, according to Safewise, which found that only one of the 10 most dangerous snow states – Michigan – was also ranked as one of the highest for wintry weather-related crashes.
