This week, Allstate released its ninth annual "America's Best Drivers Report," which ranks America's 200 largest cities in terms of car collision frequency. According to Allstate, the city ranks among some of the worst drivers in the nation.
In the report, Naperville ranks 106th, which means drivers "will experience an auto collision every 9.2 years," the report states.
But the good news is that Naperville improved for the third consecutive year and is up 19 spots from the 2011 report.
“We don’t want drivers in Naperville to be discouraged by their ranking," Illinois Allstate territory sales leader Brian Cobb in a press release. "Instead, we want the report to challenge drivers in Naperville to make positive changes to their driving habits that will in turn make the city a safer place to live, work and raise families.”
Chicago made the list at 150th, Joliet at 47th and Rockford was the safest in Illinois ranked at 28th.
This year’s top spot of “America’s Safest Driving City” goes to Fort Collins, Colorado. Fort Collins is no stranger to safe driving as this is the third time the city has held the top spot in the report’s nine-year history. According to the report, the average driver in Fort Collins will experience an auto collision every 13.9 years, which is 28.2 percent less likely than the national average of 10 years.
