Drivers who evade traffic laws live in every corner of the country, but these ten states are home to more rule-breaking motorists than anywhere else. When states issued shelter-in-place orders at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, many Americans saw the open, less congested roads as an excuse to drive more recklessly. Even as traffic levels have slowly returned to normal, drivers across the country are still practicing the bad driving habits they adopted during the pandemic’s early days. Such behavior has led to significant spikes in traffic fatality rates, as detailed in Insurify’s latest Insuring the American Driver Report.
These trends are occurring throughout the nation, but certain states are experiencing higher rates of rule-breaking behavior than others.
