Where Are the Best Drivers in the U.S.? Not in Oregon or Washington!

We all may think we’re excellent drivers, but with the amount of accidents we see on the road, that’s obviously not true. Of course, there are some cities were folks on the whole are better drivers than others, and now a new report reveals which ones are the best.

Allstate Insurance looked at claims across the top 200 cities in the country to determine which cities have the safest drivers, taking into account population density. Topping the list this year Boise, Idaho, where travelers go on average 13.65-years between collisions, which is much better than the national average of 10.57 years.
