How Safe is Your City's Driving?



ANCHOR LEAD: Are you a safe driver? How about your neighbor? You may be surprised which U.S. cities rank the highest for safest drivers. Brian Osuch has the details. (:60) SCRIPT: Newsbreak, I'm Brian Osuch. The Allstate America's Best Driver's Report is out - ranking the country's largest cities based on car collision frequency. Allstate's Michael Roche says last year's number three city earned this year's top spot. CUT: (Roche) Fort Collins, Colorado earns the honor of "America's Safest Driving City." Our report finds the average driver in Fort Collins will experience an auto collision every 13.9 years. Nationally, the average driver will experience a collision every 10 years. SCRIPT: Roche says other cities ranking high on the list are Boise, Idaho at number two and Sioux Falls, South Dakota at number three. And among cities with more than one million people, Phoenix, Arizona is the safest. Allstate says that regardless of where a city ranks on the list, there is a common theme about the type of accidents people have. CUT: (Roche) Most collisions take place in "stop and go" locations, such as public parking lots where we frequent every day. That is why drivers need to be extra vigilant when driving in these types of environments. SCRIPT: For more go to Allstate-Newsroom-dot.com. That's Newsbreak from Allstate. I'm Brian Osuch.
