Thunder Bay makes the Top 10 list of worst cities for driving
Thunder Bay drivers earned just a “C” in a report card that compares driving records of motorists across Ontario.
InsuranceHotline.com assigned the grades on the increased–or decreased–likelihood of drivers in each community being responsible for a collision or getting a traffic ticket.
Using information supplied by drivers seeking motor vehicle insurance quotes in 2018 and 2019, the company calculated the average for drivers’ records in three categories: at-fault collisions, tickets, or both.
These are infractions and collisions that drivers admitted responsibility for, but which could have occurred in their home community or anywhere else they have driven.
It says 6.9 per cent of Ontario drivers and 10.9 per cent of Thunder Bay drivers have received a ticket in the last three years.
Based on this data, InsuranceHotline.com listed the 10 worst cities in Ontario for driving, and assigned a letter grade as follows:
- Orangeville D
- Bradford D
- Woodstock D
- Sault Ste. Marie D
- Orillia D
- Thunder Bay C
- St. Thomas C
- Caledon C
- Barrie C
