America’s Worst Drivers Live In…

The results are in! Allstate Insurance has released its 8th Annual America’s Best Drivers Report. The insurance company uses data from its claims department to rank 193 of the largest cities in the US, in terms of how many times claims got filed in each city and state.

Because the data comes mostly from Allstate claims, (it only uses data from 10 percent of other auto insurance agencies) it’s not 100 percent accurate. It would be more aptly named “Allstate’s Best Drivers Report.” But assuming the overall data is the same from company to company, it’s enough to give a clear picture of the most collisions in each city and state.

Some interesting facts came out of the survey. For example, Allstate says that Americans (as a whole) are only involved in crashes once every 10 years. Most would expect the number to be higher. Small cities are expected to have fewer claims, and that was the case in the survey as well.

Here are the top five small cities that were involved in the least amount of collisions:

1. Sioux Falls, South Dakota (13.8 years between accidents)
2. Boise, Idaho (13.8 years between accidents)
3. Fort Collins, Colorado (13.6 years between accidents)
4. Madison, Wisconsin (13 years between accidents)
5. Lincoln, Nebraska (12.4 years between accidents)

Then there’s the top five safest big cities (over 1,000,000 residents) with the least amount of collisions:

1. Phoenix, Arizona (10.2 years between accidents)
2. San Diego, California (8.8 years between accidents)
3. San Antonio, Texas (8.3 years between accidents)
4. Chicago, Illinois (7.9 years between accidents)
5. Houston, Texas (7.9 years between accidents)

And finally, for the grand finale, the worst drivers in America live in:

1. Washington, D.C. (4.8 years between accidents)
2. Baltimore, Maryland (5.3 years between accidents)
3. Glendale, California (5.5 years between accidents)
4. Newark, New Jersey (5.9 years between accidents)
5. Providence, Rhode Island (6 years between accidents)
6. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (6.2 years between accidents)
7. Hartford, Connecticut (6.3 years between accidents)
8. Jersey City, New Jersey (6.4 years between accidents)
9. San Francisco, California (6.4 years between accidents)
10. Alexandria, Virginia (6.4 years between accidents)

Here’s a short video describing the report.
