Which Cities Had the Safest Drivers in 2016?

By Car Accident Help on July 5, 2017

car-accidentAccording to the Allstate insurance company, in a report of the best drivers across the U.S. in 2016, the top three cities were Brownsville, Texas; Kansas City, Kansas; and Madison, Wisconsin.

Among the top 200 cities in the report, only two of them were in Oklahoma: Tulsa and Oklahoma City. Many of the safest cities are relatively small, at least within the top 10, though it is interesting to note that Reno, Nevada is among them. Poor weather certainly impacts vehicle safety across the country, though driver caution and attentiveness tend to most heavily impact driver safety.

How Did Oklahoma Do?

Oklahoma had only two cities ranked among the safest 200 cities for driving in America. Tulsa was ranked the 63rd safest driving city, which is one place lower than the previous year. In terms of population density, it ranked 101, which is pretty low on the list compared to how safe Tulsa seems otherwise. It was ranked 61st with regard to snow and rain on road conditions.

Oklahoma City was ranked the 72nd safest driving city, and 73rd in terms of rain and snow impact on driver safety. This is a marked improvement over the previous year, in which it was ranked at 89th overall. For population density, however, it was ranked 141st, which is quite low compared to the other factors.

So Which Places Ranked Highest?

Brownsville, Texas was ranked as the safest driving city in the U.S. for 2016, moving up from second place the previous year. It is also the safest city with regard to snow and rain impacting road conditions and driver safety, and ranked second with regard to population density.

Interestingly, Kansas has three different cities in the top 10, including Kansas City in the second position overall, moving down one position from the “safest city of 2015.” Wichita and Olathe join Kansas City in the top 10 and indicate that Kansas is generally one of the safest states to drive in the U.S.

Madison, Wisconsin moved up to 3rd place from 6th the previous year, though it was the safest city with regard to population density, and 4th safest when considering rain and snow while driving.

Florida also has two cities in the top 10. Cape Coral, Florida, is the 4th safest city in the U.S. to drive in, while drivers in Port St. Lucie are the 7th safest in the country.

As with any statistics, however, these are aggregate numbers and there can be accidents in even the safest city. If you or a loved one has been in an Oklahoma car accident and you do not know what to do next, call Car Accident Help at (405) 285-4357 today.
