Texas is the most dangerous state for negligent driving, with 91% of driving fatalities due to impaired driving, according to a recent report by Forbes Advisor. Texans are also reported to be the most confrontational drivers in the country, which the report explains might give rise to why fatal car accidents increased in Texas by 16%.

Additionally, Texas ranked the 5th most dangerous state in the nation for drivers. To determine the most dangerous states for drivers, researchers for Forbes Advisor collected statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, including the number of fatal car accidents per capita, the total number of people killed in car accidents per capita, the percentage change in car accident fatalities from 2020 to 2021, and the percentage of fatalities caused by negligent driving.
