Report ranks Tucson as safe city for drivers

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Allstate's tenth annual “Allstate America's Best Drivers Report” released on Tuesday ranks Tucson as the 43rd safest among America's 200 largest cities. In its rankings, the company considered car collision frequency, where Tucson fell 23 spots since last year.

According to the report, the average Tucson driver crashes every 10.4 years, compared to national average of 10 years. Tucson ranks ninth when population is considered, 52nd when population density is considered and 48th when precipitation is considered, according to a news release.

“We don't want drivers in Tucson to be discouraged by their ranking. Instead, we want the report to challenge drivers in Tucson to make positive changes to their driving,” said Julio Galindo, an Allstate agency owner in Tucson. “By looking at how location factors of our city impact the rankings, we are learning where we can be better drivers under these conditions.”

The report ranks Tucson as the second safest among cities with a population between 500,000 and 749,999 people.

The safest city was Fort Collins, Colorado for its fourth consecutive year.
