Sioux Falls #1 Safest Driving City in U.S.
Believe it or not, Sioux Falls is home to the best drivers in America!
The Allstate Insurance Company today released its eighth annual “Allstate America’s Best Drivers Report.” The report, based on Allstate claims data, ranks America’s 200 largest cities in terms of car collision frequency to identify which cities have the safest drivers.
This year’s top honor of “America’s Safest Driving City” is Sioux Falls, the fifth year the city has held the top spot in the report’s eight-year history. According to the report, the average driver in Sioux Falls will experience an auto collision every 13.8 years, which is 27.6 percent less likely than the national average of 10 years.
“Drivers in Sioux Falls are making great progress toward keeping America’s roadways safer,” said Jeff Thompson, Field Senior Vice President of Allstate’s West Central Region. “We salute Sioux Falls’ best drivers and recognize their safe driving skills, which make all of our communities safer places to live, work and raise families.”
