Do you find yourself often proclaiming that no one in Las Vegas knows how to drive? Well, you may be onto something.

In a recent list created by Smart Asset, Nevada was deemed to have some of the worst drivers in the United States. Nevada ranked number 10 on their list for worst drivers, with its highest sub-ranking being 3rd for worst traffic and speeding tickets.

Nevada was ranked 17th for worst DUIs, which is surprising considering the accessibility to liquor on the Las Vegas Strip and the reputation that follows Reno and Las Vegas.

Are you feeling down about being a driver in Nevada? The state did rank relatively well in the number of insured drivers, 88%.

With several new hotel properties in the works and an NFL stadium soon to come, it's easy to assume that the driving will only get worse in the coming years.
