A study by Dolman Law ranks the 50 states from best to worst in which to drive. The biggest loser? Louisiana.

The second worst state to drive in is Florida, followed by Michigan. Also in the top 10 are Nevada and Mississippi.
Florida has the lowest number of insured drivers, with 27% uninsured. In 2019, nearly 3,000 fatal crashes occurred in Florida.
The most expensive car insurance in the U.S. is in Michigan, which also scored high for DUI arrests: 3.65 per 1,000 drivers.
The study determined that the best state to drive in is Illinois with a low ranking for driving fatalities, cheap auto insurance costs and a low number of DUI arrests.
