When it comes to safe drivers and the chances of getting into a car accident, where does your city rank? Allstate Insurance has released its yearly profile on the likelihood of traffic accidents in major U.S. cities, based on company data.
The fifth annual Allstate America's Best Drivers Report, released today by the insurance company, "ranks America's 200 largest cities in terms of car collision frequency to identify which cities have the safest drivers" in comparison with national averages, and also spotlights cities with the largest marked improvements in driver safety, according to an Allstate News Release.
Here's a closer look at Allstate's rankings of cities with the safest drivers:
Earlier this week, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration released some good nationwide news on driving safety. 2008 saw a 9.7 percent drop in the number of people killed in motor vehicle accidents in the U.S. -- 37,261 in 2008, down from 41,259 fatalities in 2007. That's the lowest number of car accident fatalities since 1961, and the decline in fatalities is the largest since 1982 in terms of both number and percentage, according to the NHTSA.
