Glendale drivers among worst in U.S. for 12 years in a row: study

PanARMENIAN.Net - For the 12th year in a row, Allstate Insurance has placed Glendale near the bottom of its list of U.S. cities with the safest drivers, The Los Angeles Times reports.

The insurance company released its list this week as part of its Best Drivers report, which groups 200 of the largest cities in the U.S. and ranks them according to how likely drivers who are Allstate customers get into a traffic collision and how many years go by before getting into another one.

Glendale drivers are considered 83% more likely than the national average to get into a collision.

The company represents nearly 10% of all motorists in the country. Collisions are counted regardless of severity, from a minor fender-bender to a major crash.

The 2017 rankings have Glendale at 195, the same spot it held last year, with drivers typically getting into a collision every 5.5 years. Having consistently ranked low in Allstate’s report since 2005, the highest Glendale has ever been ranked is 190.

Kansas City, Kan., has the best drivers, according to the report, with residents getting into a collision every 14.9 years. They are also 32.8% less likely than the national average to get into a collision in the first place.

Boston, Mass., came in dead last as the worst city. There, drivers get into collisions every 3.6 years and are 179.6% more likely than the national average to get into a collision.
