WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

Either Wichita drivers getting better or people in other cities are getting worse. Wichita dropped a few spots on an annual list of cities with the worst drivers.

The ranking from insurance website QuoteWizard names Wichita drivers as the 25th worst in the country. Last year, we were ranked 21 out of the 75 most populous city metro areas

QuoteWizard’s analysis aims to determine the quality of a city’s drivers by looking at the numbers of car crashes, speeding tickets, DUI cases and citations for traffic infractions like running a red light.

Base on all of those factors, drivers in Omaha, Nebraska are the worst in the country, according to QuoteWizard. Riverside and Sacramento, California follow in second and third place, respectively.

Kansas ranked the 13th worst state in 2016 and 2017.
