Over the last 9 years, Allstate has been gathering information about the rate of auto accidents in a number of cities all across America. Each year, they crunch all those numbers and use them to put out a list of the safest places in the country to be a driver. They’ve just recently released their report for 2013, and this year the title belongs to… Fort Collins, CO.
If you’re the kind of person who follows traffic stats, this should come as no surprise to you, as this is the third time Fort Collins has come out on top. They’re apparently a power house in safe driving. In fact, they’ve never finished outside of the top 10 since the study began 9 years ago. Drivers there average nearly 14 years in between accidents, which is 28% fewer than the national average.
On the other side of that coin is Washington DC who, for the second year running, took home the dubious honor of being the worst city for drivers. Their measly 4.8 years in between accidents makes even the national average seem like an achievement.
You can see the complete results over on their page to see which cities ended up where, and check out where some of our neighboring cities ended up.
Our only piece of advise is to maybe take it easy the next time your on your way to work, or dinner, or wherever it is you’re going.
