Just when I thought people actually knew how to drive here in the winter!

Michigan has been ranked the most dangerous state for winter driving, according to a report from MoneyGeek.com.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, between 2015 and 2017, Michigan had the highest fatality rate when road conditions included sleet, snow, blowing snow and freezing drizzle. Damn!

The three-year average had Michigan top out at 49 total deaths. Pennsylvania came in second with 30 fatalities and New York in third with 29.

 

I’m originally from Ohio so I’m used to the snow and people not knowing how to drive. During the last snowstorm we got, I only saw a few accidents. I feel like once you’re used to the snow and you grew up in it, you should know how to drive by now. Perhaps the accidents are the ones NOT from Michigan that think they can fly down the highway when the roads are wet.

We gotta do better Michigan!
