According to a study from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Nevada drivers rank as some of the worst in the nation, coming in on the top ten list of worst drivers nationwide. Reckless driving is responsible for three out of every ten crashes reported in the United States each year. On average, 13,000 fatal accidents are attributable to reckless driving, accounting for 33% of deadly crashes reported annually across the country.
