Arizona Ranked High in National Driver Safety Survey
Posted on behalf of Phillips Law Group on Sep 06, 2014 in Auto Accidents
A new study by the Allstate Insurance company ranked the nations 200 largest metro areas in terms of drive safety.
While drivers in Fort Collins, Colorado came in on top for the second year in a row, Arizona drivers fared relatively well in the study, with several cities ranking in the top 50.
The East Valley region of the Greater Phoenix area boasts several impressively ranked cities. Mesa, Chandler, Tempe, and Gilbert all have the best ratings in Arizona. Nine of Arizonas metropolitan areas rank within the top 80 spots.
The state's drivers may benefit from sunny weather for most of the year. Drivers here do not have to worry about car accidents caused by snow and ice, which becomes a problem for drivers in northern states.
Arizona cities that made the cut of the top 200 areas include:
- Gilbert - 20th
- Mesa - 22nd
- Chandler - 31st
- Tempe - 33rd
- Tucson - 43rd
- Scottsdale - 45th
- Peoria - 47th
- Glendale - 65th
- Phoenix - 79th
While Phoenix is the lowest Arizona city on this list, another Allstate study looking at cities with a population of over one million people ranked Phoenix first for safety. That study found that the average Phoenix driver is in an accident every 9.5 years. In comparison, Boston drivers can expect to be in a collision every 4.4 years.
Arizonas driver accident statistics may be impressive, but collisions and injuries will always be a fact of life for even the most careful drivers.
