Drivers in Philadelphia, you've been shamed.
The city ranks 188th out of 194th American cities in the ninth annual ranking of safest driving cities in America by insurance giant Allstate, which released its report titled 'America's Best Drivers Report' on Tuesday.
The statistics compiled are damning:
- Philadelphia ranks last among the country's nine cities with more than 1 million residents.
- Drivers in Philadelphia, at 189th out of the 194 cities ranked by Allstate, get into an accident — on average — every 6.0 years. Phoenix, which was ranked safest for drivers among the nine big cities, has an average of 9.8 years between collisions for drivers.
- Drivers in Philadelphia are 65 percent more likely than the national average to get into an accident.
The safest city in America for driving, according to the report, is Fort Collins, Colo. — with a population of roughly 143,000 — where the average years between collision is 13.9 years. They must be doing something right in Fort Collins: It's ranked first three of the nine years Allstate has compiled the statistics.
