The Allstate Insurance Company recently released their eighth annual ‘Allstate America’s Best Drivers Report.’
The report, based on Allstate insurance claims data, ranks America’s 200 largest cities for car accidentfrequency.
This year’s top honor of ‘America’s Safest Driving City’ is Sioux Falls, South Dakota; the fifth time that the city has held the top spot.
According to the report, the average driver in Sioux Falls will experience a car accident every 13.8 years, which is 27.6 percent less likely than the national average of 10 years.
Car crash fatalities are at the lowest level they’ve been since 1949, but still average more than 32,000 every year, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
To create the list, Allstate property damage claims were analyzed over a two-year period (from January 2009 to December 2010). Allstate’s auto policies represent about 10 percent of all U.S. auto policies, making this report a realistic snapshot of what’s happening on America’s roads.
Here are the top ten cities which rank how less likely someone is likely to have a car accident than the national average as well as how many years someone is likely to go without a car accident. For example, a driver in Sioux Falls is 27% less likely to have a car accident, than the national average and will probably go 13.8 years between car crashes.
1. Sioux Falls, S.D. 27.6% less likely 13.8
2. Boise, Idaho 27.3% less likely 13.8
