Arlington drivers are among some of the nation’s worst, according to a new report by Allstate Insurance Co.
Out of 195 cities, Washington, D.C., had the highest crash frequency, and Baltimore was second. Alexandria landed in seventh place, with a relative crash likelihood of 62.6 percent above the national average.
In 12th place was Arlington, which has a relative crash likelihood of 53 percent above the national average.
The honor of “America’s Safest Driving City" falls to Sioux Falls, S.D., the fifth time in the history of the report that city has held the top spot.
"Allstate's Best Driver's Report was created to boost the country's discussion on safe driving. Each year we hope the report will increase awareness about the importance of being tolerant and attentive behind the wheel," said Mike Roche, senior vice president of claims for Allstate, in a news release.
"We want to recognize the city of Sioux Falls for being the safest driving city in America, and whether you drive in a large city, small city or a rural area, we encourage all Americans to practice safe driving habits and good car safety."
