This may come as a surprise, but in a recent study, Michigan drivers were found to be among the best in the country.

The study was conducted by QuoteWizard and analyzed over 2 million insurance quotes in order to find out which states have the best and worst drivers in America. And, as it turns out, Michigan ended up ranking pretty high on the list of best drivers, including being named as the state with the least accidents.

The study ranked the 3 states with the most and least accidents and Michigan topped the list with West Virginia and Oklahoma ranking second and third respectively. Tennessee ended up having the most accidents with Massachusetts and Rhode Island right behind.

Apart from finding the states with the most and least accidents, the study's main goal was to rank the states from best to worst drivers overall and Michigan ended up doing pretty well. Overall, Michigan is considered to have the 8th best drivers in the country, ranked just above Arizona and just below Louisiana.
