CLEVELAND — The state of Ohio had the most drivers with moving offenses in 2018, according to a study by insurance quote comparison website Insurify.

The website looked into the number of drivers with an incident in the past seven years in each state, based on the car insurance applications of 1.9 million Americans, factoring it against the total number of drivers in those states.

Thirty percent of Ohio drivers have either been caught speeding, been involved in an accident or had a DUI, according to the study.

Drivers in Virginia had the most speeding offenses, drivers in Maine had the most accidents, and drivers in Wyoming had the most DUIs.

Michigan is the safest state to drive in, according to the study.
