According to a study commissioned by Allstate Insurance, Washington, DC is home to the least safe drivers in the country. The study looked at claims data for 2007 and 2008, and did not include Massachusetts drivers, since Allstate did not sell insurance in the Commonwealth during that the period.
The claims data showed that DC drivers are on average involved in an accident every 5.1 years, which means that motorists in our country’s capital are 96% more likely to get into an auto accident than drivers elsewhere. In Baltimore, Maryland, the second most dangerous area, that figure is an accident every 5.6 years.
Fort Collins, Colorado topped the list of safe drivers with an average of 14.5 years between collisions.
