The Safest (and Most Dangerous) Drivers in the Country

Automotive safety is a two-way street, literally. Pick any city in this country and if you don’t drive safely, there’s a good chance that you’ll be in an accident or two. The average American driver gets into a car accident every 8-10 years, depending on who you ask. At Auto Stiegler Service And Repair   in  Reseda ,  CA , we pride ourselves on being safe drivers and that’s why we’re pleased to be offering you this interesting (and educational) data.  

Maybe it’s a cultural thing, or it has something to do with the environment, but statistics suggest that certain areas of the U.S. inherently breed more cautious drivers, while others tend to produce some of the most accident-prone motorists on the road.

If auto safety is your number one vehicular priority, you might want to move to Ft. Collins, CO, which boasts the safest drivers in the nation according to the annual America’s Best Driver’s Report conducted by Allstate Insurance Co. in Northbrook, IL. Those living in Ft. Collins go an average 14.2 years between accidents, with traffic incidents 29.6 less likely to occur than the national average of once every 10 years.

Of the 10 cities having the statistically safest motorists, most tend to be located in the heartland of America, with Alabama (Huntsville and Montgomery) and Texas (Brownsville and Laredo) each placing two cities among the best drivers list.

On the other hand, you might want to stay out of Worcester, MA, where drivers tend to become involved in an auto accident once every 4.3 years, which makes them 134.8 percent more liable to crash their cars than the average American.

All but one of the 10 cities having the most accident-afflicted motorists are located in the Northeast, with Boston and Washington, DC – not coincidentally two cities that regularly place at or near the top of worst-traffic lists.

According to Allstate’s stats, 70 percent of vehicles involved in collisions are subsequently drivable, which would indicate they occur at lower speeds (under 35 mph). Still, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says 33,500 fatalities occur on U.S. roadways each year, which is indeed serious business.

Here’s the list, chosen from the 200 cities that were studied:

Here’s the top 10 list of cities having the safest drivers, according to Allstate’s 2014 Best Driver’s Report:
