Driving is an everyday activity for many Americans, but it also can be a risky one.

Forbes determined the U.S. cities with the "worst drivers" due to a blend of different factors:

"Fatal car accidents are increasing across the country, with the number of deadly crashes climbing by nearly 10% from 2020 to 2022. In some cities, there is a higher percentage of dangerous drivers on the road, putting everyone at greater risk when they get behind the wheel. So, which cities have the worst drivers?
