Here’s How Bad San Diego Drivers Rank Against The Rest of the U.S.

Eight California cities are ranked among the Top 10 for worst drivers in America, including San Diego, which was named the sixth worst.

KTLA says QuoteWizard looked at drivers in 70 cities across the country, evaluating them for speeding tickets, citations for running a red light or using a phone while driving, accidents and DUIs.

Overall, the cities on the worst driver list have only gotten worse since 2021.
