Drivers in Brownsville Are the Safest Drivers in Texas and the Nation
Congratulations to the drivers in Brownsville, Texas.
According to the 15th Annual Allstate America's Best Drivers Report, those who drive in and around Brownsville are the safest in the United States.
According to a press release from Allstate, the report ranked 200 cities to determine the safest drivers across the nation:
The America’s Best Drivers Report ranks the 200 largest U.S. cities by collision frequency based on Allstate claims data to determine which have the safest drivers. For the first time, Allstate also tapped into its claims data to uncover the “Risky Roads” with the most collisions in the bottom 15 cities to help those drivers be extra vigilant, while also advocating for infrastructure improvements.
“The goal of the America’s Best Drivers Report is to make our roads safer and ultimately save lives,” said Ken Rosen, Allstate’s Chief Claims Officer. “Each of us needs to ask how we can do our part in our day-to-day lives and for our communities. And beyond that, this country needs to come together to address pressing safety issues, such as rebuilding our roadway infrastructure to reduce risky conditions on America’s roads.”
Three cities in Texas made the top 15 this year, according to the report. Brownsville claimed the no.1 spot, Laredo was no. 5, and McAllen claimed 9th place on the list.
How did Lubbock drivers do according to Allstate? Not great, but definitely not the worst in the Texas. Lubbock ranked no. 53 out of 200, and Amarillo was 20th. But a number of large cities in Texas have some work to do.
Austin came in at no. 160, Houston was no. 158, and Irving came in at no. 180, which was the worst ranking in Texas.
