Here’s something that the state of Colorado has to be proud of. For the second year in a row, Fort Collins was named America’s safest city to drive in by Allstate Insurance in their annual America’s Best Drivers Report. The report takes into account city population and density and only auto wrecks that resulted in a claim of property damage.
According to that report, Fort Collins has 30% less car wrecks than the national average. Additionally, a driver in that city will be on the road for 14.2 years on average before being involved in an accident. Those are pretty incredible numbers.
But even being at the top spot doesn’t completely protect drivers against accidents. Days after the report was released, Fort Collins police received twenty-six collision related calls. Just imagine how high that number must be in the cities at the bottom of Allstate’s list. Massachusetts seemed to receive the brunt of the bad press with drivers in cities like Boston and Worcester being 130% more likely than the national average to be involved in a collision.
So who rounded out the top cities in the Allstate America’s Best Drivers Report?
- Fort Collins, Colorado
- Brownsville, Texas
- Boise, Idaho
- Kansas City, Kansas
- Huntsville, Alabama
- Montgomery, Alabama
- Visalia, California
- Laredo, Texas
- Madison, Wisconsin
- Olathe, Kansas
