Rankings of Ohio Cities in America’s Best Drivers Report

September 5, 2012

Auto Accidents

driver safetyIt’s no secret that a large part of the Ohio population owns or operates a motor vehicle.  Whether commuting to and from work, taking the kids to school or making a holiday trip to the in-law’s house, driving plays an important role in Ohioans day-to-day lives.  Given the amount of motor vehicle activity within Ohio, drivers have to be concerned about roadway safety and traffic accidents.  Given that fact, one begins to wonder … where does Ohio stand in overall driver safety when compared to other states?

This month, Allstate Insurance published their annual “America’s Best Driver Reports”.  In this report, Allstate ranks major United States cities by the number of years between car accidents they were involved in.  The city with the best drivers is Sioux Falls, South Dakota (ranked #1).  In Sioux Falls, an average driver has 13.8 years between automobile accidents.  Baltimore (ranked #194) and Washington DC (ranked #195) are among the worst, where drivers are involved in car accidents about every 5 years.

The major Ohio cities of Cleveland (ranked #63) and Akron (ranked #58) are ranked in the upper echelon, with almost 10 years between traffic accidentsColumbus (ranked #135) and Cincinnati (ranked #117) were ranked in the lower-half of the demographic, with about 8.5-9 years between motor vehicle accidents.

Overall, Ohioans fall right in the middle of the study.  Ohio’s roads are not as dangerous as a major-metropolitan like Washington DC, Miami or Los Angeles, but aren’t extremely safe, either.  Automobile accidents that happen with the frequency stated in the Allstate report have the potential to happen almost eight times in the average American’s lifetime.

If you are involved in an automobile accident, truck accident and suffered a personal injury as a result of another driver’s negligence, you have the right to be compensated.  You should immediately contact an Ohio personal injury attorney to discuss your claim and injuries you’ve suffered.
