Omaha and Lincoln rate as two of the safest driving communities in the United States.
The Allstate Insurance Company today released its eighth annual “Allstate America’s Best Drivers Report.”
The report, based on Allstate claims data, ranks America’s 200 largest cities in terms of car collision frequency to identify which cities have the safest drivers.
The 2012 report includes two Nebraska cities, Lincoln and Omaha, on its list of the safest driving cities. Lincoln ranks as the fifth safest driving city in the country. According to the report, the average driver in Lincoln will experience an auto collision every 12.4 years. Omaha ranks 45 on this year’s list.
Although slipping two spots from last year’s report, Lincoln takes the top spot for cities with less than 500,000 people.
“Drivers in Nebraska are making great progress toward keeping America’s roadways safer,” said Nebraska based Allstate Agent, Tim Waltrip. “We salute Nebraska’s best drivers and recognize their safe driving skills, which make all of our communities safer places to live, work and raise families.”
The Allstate America’s Best Driver’s Report was created to facilitate an ongoing dialogue on safe driving that saves lives. This year’s top honor of “America’s Safest Driving City” is Sioux Falls, South Dakota, the fifth year the city has held the top spot in the report’s eight-year history. According to the report, the average driver in Sioux Falls will experience an auto collision every 13.8 years, which is 27.6 percent less likely than the national average of 10 years.
