Allstate Insurance has realeased its 10th Best Driver's Report to date and we have bad news for Massachusetts motorists. Boston shouldn't worry. In fact, Worcester drivers are 134.8 percent more likely to have an accident than the national average.
In recent years, U.S. drivers coined the "Masshole" term. No offence to drivers from the Bay State, Old Colony, Codfish State, Massachusetts, whatever you like to call your New England home. Allstate ranked Worcester at #200 according to vehicle collision frequency and Boston follows closely in pos. 199.

Springfield was ranked 197th in the list and Washington, DC came next in the 10th annual Allstate America's Best Drivers report. No offence guys, but claims data doesn't lie about what's happening on your road network. The bottom 25 cities include New Jersey, Miami, Newark, New Haven and even Bridgeport. With those covered, what are the safest places to drive in the U. S. of A.? Have a guess.

Nope, that's not it. Fort Collins, Colorado is the right answer. Allstate's report says that drivers round here are 29.6 percent less likely to be involved in an accident compared to the national average. The auto insurance company translates that figure to a 14.2-year average between accidents, which is pretty good.

The rest of the top 10 safest cities to drive in the United States are as follows: Brownsville (Texas), Boise (Idaho), Kansas City (Kansas), Huntsville (Alabama), Montgomery (Alabama), Visalia (California), Laredo (Texas), Madison (Wisconsin) and Olathe (Kansas).
