MIAMI (CBS4) – If you think drivers are dangerous in South Florida, you’re right, especially in Fort Lauderdale which has topped a new list of the 15 most dangerous U.S. cities for driving.

According to the CNBC report, the list is based on traffic fatality statistics compiled from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Four Florida cities made the list including Fort Lauderdale which was ranked first, Orlando was ranked second, Jacksonville was 11th and St. Petersburg came in at 12th.

So why does Florida rank so badly?

Some blame the high number of New York transplants, tourists driving in unfamiliar territory and senior citizens, not to mention spring breakers, who may have compromised vision or reflexes.

Here’s the entire list:

1. Fort Lauderdale
2. Orlando
3. Augusta-Richmond Co., Georgia
4. Little Rock, Arkansas
5. San Bernardino, California
6. Salt Lake City, Utah
7. Chattanooga, Tennessee
8. Jackson, Mississippi
9. Memphis, Tennessee
10. Lubbock, Texas
11. Jacksonville
12. St. Petersburg
13. Tulsa, Oklahoma
14. Birmingham, Alabama
15. Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
