One key reason Detroit has such dangerous drivers is the high number of fatal car crash victims.  Another is that Detroit ranked second highest in these categories:

  • The total number of fatal car accidents (19.76 per 100,000 city residents).
  • The number of fatal car accidents involving a drunk driver (6.54 per 100,000 city residents).
  • The number of fatal car accidents involving speeding (6.8 per 100,000 city residents).
  • The number of people killed in fatal crashes (21.47 per 100,000 city residents).

From my experience of driving to Detroit for sporting events and concerts, I would agree that there are some incredibly reckless and dangerous drivers on the road.

I've had multiple close calls where I asked myself "How the hell did they get a license?"
