How does your state rank???

If you are like me and someone you love will be driving soon - check out this info! I was amazed at the facts.  Wisconsin is not in the top 10 - Wisconsin is #11. 

With teens obtaining driver’s licenses during the summer more than any other season and an average of 250 auto-related teen deaths every month during the same period, the
leading personal finance website WalletHub followed up on its analysis of 2015's Safest States to Live In with an in-depth look at the Best & Worst States for Teen Drivers.
We compared the driving conditions for teens in the 50 U.S. states based on 16 key metrics. The data is broken down into categories that examine the safety conditions, economic environment and driving laws of each state.
