All-State's Best Drivers Report 2014
Each year All-State ranks the top 200 cities in the U.S. based on the relative likelihood of their policy holders (drivers) being involved in motor vehicle collisions (auto accidents). They have not yet released their results for 2015. According to All-State (the results can be seen here) the top five safest cities for drivers include:
1) Fort Collins, Colorado, 2) Brownsville, Texas, 3) Boise, Idaho, 4) Kansas City, Kansas, 5) Huntsville, Alabama.
Now for the bad news. The least safest cities to drive in according to All-State are as follows:
195) Baltimore, Maryland, 196) Providence, Rhode Island, 197) Springfield, Mass. 198) Washington, DC 199) Boston, Mass. and 200) Worcester, Mass.
Clearly the trend is for older cities in the north east with old infrastructure and lots of residents to lead to there being more auto accidents. Residents of Baltimore where I practice need to be aware of the relative risk of auto accidents compared to other areas in the country.
In Baltimore, statistically drivers are likely to be involved in a motor vehicle collision every 5.4 years. In Washington D.C., our neighbor to the south, residents are statistically involved in a crash every 5.1 years. These numbers are in start contrast to the "safest city" Fort Collins, Colorado, where residents are statistically involved in crashes every 14.2 years.
With more and more people on the road it is becoming more important to limit the distractions, focus on driving, and arrive alive. Residents of cities such as Baltimore and Washington D.C. need to pay extra close attention due to the relative increased likelihood of being involved in an automobile accident.
