According to a recent report issued by Allstate Insurance Co., Baltimore, Md. can lay claim to having the worst – or at least the most accident-prone – drivers among the 200 largest cities in the U.S.
Residents of the Charm City were found to get into collisions on average once every 5.3 years. This means they’re 88.7 percent more likely to get into an accident every time they take the wheel than the typical driver in the U.S., who wrecks his or her car once every 10 years.
Other cities ranking high on the list include such traffic hot spots as Glendale, Calif., Newark, N.J., Providence, R.I., and Philadelphia, Pa. Los Angeles holds down the number 10 position, with the driving population crashing their vehicles once every 6.6 years. Surprisingly, New York City didn’t place among the top 10, being ranked at number 19 in the survey, with motorists getting into collisions on average once every 7.3 years (guess cab drivers weren’t counted as part of the study).
