A new study ranks Iowa drivers as the safest in the U.S. According to CarInsuranceComparison.com, the Hawkeye state came in at number one based on a number of different factors.

The categories included things like fatalities on the roadway and careless driving habits like speeding or running a red light. Iowa drivers ranked no higher than 34 out of 51 in all five categories giving Iowa the number one spot.

While the survey results are a nice feather in the hat for Iowans, law enforcement officials say not to get carried away. Police say smaller incidents like minor accidents and road rage are not included in the studies results. You can view the full study and Iowa's rankings HERE.
