Michigan 6th worst state for driving in snow

By  | 

LANSING, Mich. (WILX) -- It really doesn't matter if you are used to driving in winter weather or not, it's still a nightmare for most of us.

This is one of the deadliest times on our roadways.

News 10's Brett Collar has some new information on which states have the best and worst drivers when it comes to traveling in snow.

In 2016, 2,800 people died on American roads because of snow or rain.

Winter road conditions like sleet, ice, snow and freezing rain make getting behind the wheel a risky move.

SafeWise took a look at what states are the most dangerous and, you guessed it, Michigan is at the top of the list and most of the crashes happen in October.

The top 10 for worst snow driving:
1. Wyoming
2. Vermont
3. Montana
4. Idaho
5. Maine
6. Michigan
7. Iowa
8. New Mexico
9. Minnesota
10. Nebraska

Most of them experience snow in winter but, in some cases, it's states like New Mexico that, when they get snow, they have no idea how to drive on it.

Best advice, don't go out if you don't have to, but if you do, take your time, keep some space between you and the cars around you and always wear your seatbelt.
