Not so fast says Michael Dresser in The Sun. pointing out that the “sample size was relatively small, and wild swings in state performance from year to year suggest the survey is not the gold standard in research.”
Still I suspect that there is more truth than fiction here. In a study released last year by Allstate ranking 193
US cities for “Best Drivers”, was second to last at 192. The worst was Baltimore Washington, D.C.
“For the past six years, Allstate actuaries have conducted an in-depth analysis of company claim data to determine the likelihood drivers in
's 200 largest cities will experience a vehicle collision compared to the national average.” America
you are 79.4% more likely to have an auto accident than the national average. In DC, the likelihood rises to 95.5%. Baltimore
That puts us smack dab in the middle of the worst.
