Why Is Ohio So Dangerous for Drivers?

Ohio is dangerous because there are many at-fault accidents, speeding tickets, and DUIs throughout the state.

According to Insurify, more than 16% of Ohio drivers have one or more speeding tickets on their records. If drivers are violating speeding laws, they may also be violating other rules of the road. Drivers who do not abide by legal guidelines pose a threat to other drivers. This is especially true of speeding, which is the cause of nearly one-third of all motor vehicle fatalities, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

More than 13% of drivers in Ohio have an at-fault accident on their record. Most car accidents are caused by driver error, including distracted driving. Other causes of at-fault accidents include failure to yield, following too closely, and failure to adhere to traffic control devices or signs.

Nearly 3% of drivers in Ohio have a DUI on their record. Driving under the influence is, perhaps, one of the most heinous crimes, as everyone has a lot to lose. These crashes can be severe and often result in fatalities.
