Are you a bad driver? According to one survey you may be.  

A survey conducted by Insurify, who provides car insurance quotes based on customers' answers to questions about driving history, vehicle type and other personal data shows that Greer, South Carolina has some of the worst drivers in the United States. 

The survey rankings in the article were based on 1.4 million car insurance shopper applications. Shoppers were asked if they had been cited for a driving incident where they were at fault in the past 7 years. 

At fault incidents that qualified included: accidents, DUIs, failures to stop, speeding, reckless driving, passing violations and other causes for citations. 

Using this data, Insurify was able to calculate the percent of drivers in each city with a history of at-fault driving incidents. 

Number one on the list, Greer. 

The survey posted the following statistics for Greer: 

  • Percent of drivers with an at-fault driving incident: 33.62%
  • Population: 30,899
  • 103% more likely to receive a speeding ticket than the average driver
  • 63% more likely to get into an at-fault accident than the average driver
