Over the past nine years, Allstate has been putting together a bunch of data about car accidents all across the country. Each year, they use the data collected to compile a long list of the safest drivers by city. The 2013 report is out, and the title for safest drivers went to Fort Collins, CO this year.
This comes as no surprise, as it’s the third time the Colorado suburb has walked away with the title. And, actually, Fort Collins is a bit of a safe driving power house. In the history of the contest, they’ve never finished outside the top ten. Drivers there go an average of 14 years in between accidents, which is 28% longer than the national average.
Also not surprising is that we find the worst city for driver safety in a busy metropolitan area. For the second year in a row, Washington D.C. took home the dubious title of least safe drivers. Perhaps understandable, as I’m sure they all have very important places to be.
To check out all the cities in between, you can head over and read their full list to see which cities ended up where, and if there are any familiar North Carolinian cities to speak of.
Keep your head on a swivel out there, and maybe you can avoid any fender benders, but there’s no avoiding the everyday wear and tear that you car experiences, so for all your necessary maintenance services and repairs, bring your car or truck in to Newton’s Car Care in High Point, NC.
