San Diego second safest big city for drivers
San Diego and Phoenix best for drivers, Los Angeles and Philadelphia worst.
A report issued last Tuesday by Allstate Insurance Company called San Diego the second safest big city for drivers in the country.
The report notes that collisions in America’s Finest City are 14.6% more likely to occur than the national mean, with drivers going an average of 8.7 years between collisions.
Coming in safest was Phoenix, Arizona, where collisions are only 2% more likely than the national average and drivers go 9.8 years between.
The most dangerous big cities?
You guessed it – Los Angeles comes in at second most unsafe with collisions nearly 50% more likely and an average of 6.7 years between collisions, being beat out only by Philadelphia.
You stay classy, San Diego.
