Texas Has Most Cities in Allstate’s Best Driver’s Report

The insurance company Allstate has come out with its America's Best Drivers Report which ranks the 200 largest U.S. cities and suburbs with the safest drivers.

Texas is the state with the most cities in the top 10 list this year.

3. Madison, WI
4. Huntsville, AL
5. Cape Coral, FL
6. Boise, ID

The list is based on Allstate's claims data and other factors.

Allstate says the report is produced, "solely to boost the country's discussion about safe driving and to increase awareness of the importance of being safe and attentive behind the wheel."

"On average, July 4th is the deadliest day on the roads, and July and August are the peak months for crash deaths," said Adrian Lund, president of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

Data gleaned from the report shows the average driver will experience a collision every 10 years and 94 percent of collisions are caused by preventable human factors.

Allstate says the report is not used to determine auto insurance rates.

Meanwhile Quote Wizard, another insurance company, also came out with rankings of the best and worst drivers in the 75 most populous cities.
