Sioux Falls Named Safest Driving City Again…BS!

10th and CliffAfter literally six ‘near accidents’ just on my trip to the grocery store last night on my way home after work, I had planned on blogging about the awful, inconsiderate, self-centered drivers I seem to encounter every time I leave the house. I wake up to the news that we’re the safest driving city in America according to Allstate Insurance????

This is 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.

“Drivers in Sioux Falls are making great progress toward keeping America’s roadways safer,” said Jeff Thompson, Field Senior Vice President of Allstate’s West Central Region. “We salute Sioux Falls’ best drivers and recognize their safe driving skills, which make all of our communities safer places to live, work and raise families.”

Sioux Falls is the only city in South Dakota to make Allstate’s America’s Best Drivers Report. No cities in Iowa or Minnesota made the list either.

The top ten cities are:

1. Sioux Falls, S.D.. 27.6% less likely 13.8

2. Boise, Idaho 27.3% less likely 13.8

3. Fort Collins, Colo. 26.7% less likely 13.6

4. Madison, Wisc. 23.0% less likely 13.0

5. Lincoln, Neb. 19.3% less likely 12.4

6. Huntsville, Ala. 19.1% less likely 12.4

7. Chandler, Ariz. 18.9% less likely 12.3

8. Reno, Nev. 18.4% less likely 12.3

9. Knoxville, Tenn. 18.1% less likely 12.2

10. Springfield, Mo. 17.4% less likely 12.1

We’ve got people who can’t follow traffic arrows in parking lots and then flip you the bird when you look at them for driving like an idiot; people driving 55 in a 40 with their knees while texting; people coming to dead stops in the middle of traffic instead of pulling over when lost; people taking lefts from the RIGHT turn lane….and yes, that was ALL in my THREE MILE DRIVE from work to home last night!

Safest drivers in America?!?! I may never leave home again!
