Journalism. We believe it should help you live a better life.

That’s why we spend a lot less time on publishing mug shots and a lot more time helping you understand the employment market, figure out how to spend more time with friends and family with our events calendar, and what you can do to help businesses that have opened up. Make no mistake…we aren’t shy. We tackle the big stuff, like COVID and issues around race.

And if you believe in the value of journalism — that it should help, not exploit — please consider becoming a paid member of the Racine County Eye today. We can’t do this work without you.

MOUNT PLEASANT, WI — They say there are only two seasons in Wisconsin: winter and road construction season. It’s true that the typical motorist in Southeastern Wisconsin has seen their share of fender benders, pot holes and detours.

According to QuoteWizard best and worst driver studies Wisconsin typically ranks near the middle of the pack in overall driver quality.

After the results were tallied, Mount Pleasant was rated as the worst-driving community in the state. Superior was the best.

According to Quote Wizard, “Mount Pleasant is in a high traffic spot that makes it a perfect location for incidents. Folks traveling from Milwaukee to Chicago are bound to find themselves in heavy traffic in Mount Pleasant. The combination of traffic and bad drivers in Mount Pleasant puts the city on top as the worst drivers in the state.”

It can be argued that the remote city of Superior had geography on its side. According to Quote Wizard, “Superior takes the top spot as the best drivers. Rightfully so, the city sitting on its namesake lake is so far away from any traffic areas avoiding road incidents.”

To determine overall driver quality in Wisconsin, Quote Wizard ranked the 50-largest cities in the state. The group analyzed more than 49,000 insurance quotes from Wisconsin drivers using QuoteWizard.com and ranked cities by the highest rate of incidents.

Incidents include accidents, speeding tickets, DUIs, and citations.
