Categories: Road Rage

Last month, Slate concluded that Miami has America's worst drivers, while Hialeah is third. Well, Allstate came out today with their own version of the list and while those Miami-Dade cities didn't do quite so bad, there's still nothing to be proud of.

According to Allstate, Hialeah has America's fourth worst drivers while Miami has the 8th worst in the country.


Allstate's criteria is rather simple. They use the average number of years between accidents to come up with their rankings.

On average Hialeah drivers will get into an accident every 5.6 years and are 78.7 percent more likely to get into an accident than the average American driver.

Miami drivers get into an accident every 6.3 years on average and are 59.4 percent more likely to get into an accident.

Hialeah is down one spot on the worst drivers list (or up one spot on the best drivers list, if you're an optimist) since 2012 while Miami stayed at exactly the same spot.

Here's the bottom ten:

1. Washington, DC
2. Baltimore, MD
3. Providence, RI
4. Hialeah, FL
5. Glendale, CA
6. Philadelphia, PA
7. Alexandria, VA
8. Miami, Fl
9. San Francisco, CA
10. Arlington, VA

Every time I have to go to Miami I am scared to death the whole drive. We always see at least 2 accidents before we leave

Not surprised. SoFla/Miami drivers are HORRENDOUS. Wondering aloud here folks: if you live in the United States then it is not unreasonable to expect that you should have to take the driver's test in English. I am the most liberal and racially tolerant man you will meet but Hello?!... road signs are in English. Why the hell does the Florida DMV issue driver's tests in Spanish????!!!!!!

the closest I get to Hialeah, is when I stab my car, past 25th street all the way to Miami Lakes drive, on the Palmetto. Even Hialean air is most taxing...

The problem with Miami is that uneducated obnoxious people are the majority around here. People who don't care to drive better or do the right thing. That's why so many corruption and bribery cases are the soup du jour. And yes, I avoid driving through our going to Hialeah...
