Allstate Insurance Company today released its 12th annual America’s Best Drivers Report, and Las Vegas ranked 99th safest among America’s 200 largest cities in terms of collision frequency.
The report underscores Allstate’s commitment to safety, especially as motorists prepare to hit the roads for the July 4 holiday, the deadliest day of the year for drivers, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
Allstate’s report found the average driver in Las Vegas will experience an auto collision every 9.1 years, compared to the national average of every 10 years.
This year Brownsville, Texas, claimed the overall top spot for the first time in the report’s 12-year history. The average Brownsville driver experiences an auto collision every 14.6 years, which is 31.4 percent less likely than the national average.
