Yesterday Allstate Insurance Company released its eighth annual “Allstate America’s Best Drivers Report™.” The findings in the report are based on Allstate claims and used the frequency of car collisions to rank nearly two hundred cities to discover America’s safest driving city. This year’s top honors went to Sioux Falls, South Dakota. If you drive in that city you are likely to be involved in an auto collision every 13.8 years, which is 27.6% less likely than the national average of 10 years. How do Bay Area drivers compare? Check out below for a comparison of the bay area cities included in the report:
Best Driver Rank
Most Recent Population Estimate
|Avg. Years Between Accidents|
Relative Accident Likelihood (to National Average)
Analyzing these statistics reveal a few things about Bay Area drivers. San Francisco drivers not only rank last in the bay area but also in the nation, with one of the nation’s worst driver rank. Another interesting note is that drivers of bay area cities were more likely involved in an accident than the national average.
Be sure to check the tips Allstate included in the report to increase your safety while traveling on the road, especially as people prepare to travel on the road this upcoming Labor Day weekend. Thanks for reading Slice of Appel PI today! We hope you continue to read and share it with others.
