The Allstate America's Best Drivers Report® is an annual ranking that identifies which of the 200 largest U.S. cities and their surrounding suburban metropolitan areas have the safest drivers.

Good Driving Starts Young

Sassy 3-year olds are funny, unsafe driving isn't. Auto collisions are the No. 1 killer of young drivers. Set a good example for our future drivers. #GoodDrivingStartsYoung


The Safest Drivers
From Coast To Coast.

From always buckling up to never texting behind the wheel, there are many ways people across the nation practice safe driving habits. With its annual report, Allstate hopes to encourage Americans to be safer, smarter drivers.

The Allstate America's Best Drivers Report® is the result of an in-depth examination of company claims data, to determine the likelihood drivers in America's 200 largest cities will experience a vehicle collision compared to the national average. According to Allstate claims data, the average driver in the U.S will experience one collision every 10 years. This year, Allstate researchers analyzed property damage claims reported during the two-year period of January 2014 to December 2015. The report defines a collision as any auto crash resulting in a property damage claim and uses U.S. Census Bureau data to determine America's 200 largest cities and to obtain the population density factor. For the precipitation factor, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) data was utilized. Hard-braking data is based on customers voluntarily enrolled in Allstate's Drivewise® telematics program from 2014-2015. A number of cities, and their surrounding suburbs, in the full 200 Best Drivers' rankings are excluded from hard-braking analysis due to limited measurable Drivewise data, or because Drivewise was not available (California, North Carolina, South Carolina and Texas). Allstate's auto policies represent nearly 10 percent of all U.S. auto policies, making this report a realistic snapshot of what's happening on America's roadways. The Allstate America's Best Drivers Report is produced solely to boost the country's discussion about safe driving and to increase awareness of the importance of being safe and attentive behind the wheel. The report is not used to determine auto insurance rates.

Allstate found a correlation between hard braking and collision frequency. Drivers in cities with fewer hard-braking events per 1,000 miles tend to have fewer property damage claims. Nationally, the average American driver will experience approximately 19 hard-braking events for every 1,000 miles driven.
