Where's the safest place to drive? Fort Collins, Colo.
By Insure.com staff

Fort Collins, Colo., is the safest city for driving, according to a new report from Allstate Insurance.

It's the second consecutive year for the city at the top spot. A driver in Fort Collins will get in a car accident every 14 years--a 28.6 percent less likelihood than the national average of 10 years, according to Allstate.

Allstate's report, now it its seventh year, ranks America's 200 largest cities for car collision frequency, based on the insurance company's claims data.

Other cities in to the top 10 for driving safety are:

• Boise, Idaho

• Lincoln, Neb.

• Chandler, Ariz.

• Huntsville, Ala.

• Knoxville, Tenn.

• Springfield, Mo.

• Reno, Nev.

• Eugene, Ore.

• Chattanooga, Tenn.

Phoenix, Ariz., is the safest driving city among cities with more than 1 million residents.

Car crashes have declined in general over the last few years, yet still take a heavy toll. Crash fatalities average more than 32,000 every year, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

"Human behavior is the biggest cause of accidents. It is vital for us to educate American drivers about safe driving behaviors they can demonstrate on the road that will help make our roadways safer," Mike Roche, executive vice president, Allstate's Claim Organization, said in a press statement.

Allstate created the report to boost awareness about safe driving. Fewer accidents means lower auto insurance costs.
