You don’t want to see the place you call home on this list. Unfortunately, you’re about to see exactly that. According to auto insurance comparison website Insurify, Charlotte is one of the U.S. cities with the most car accidents.

Insurify’s data science team analyzed their database of over 1.6 million car insurance applications to determine the city in each state with the most accident-prone drivers. They looked at driver history, vehicle, and personal information such as whether or not they had any at-fault accidents on their record in the past seven years. The study also took into consideration the percentage of drivers with prior DUI and average commute time in each city.

Charlotte isn’t the only community in the Carolinas on the list. Johns Island, South Carolina has the dubious distinction of having the most accidents on the road. Let’s be careful out there, folks.
