Cape Coral car accident attorneyDrivers experience a motor vehicle crash serious enough to warrant an insurance claim approximately every 10 years, So if you haven’t been in a Port Charlotte car accident in a while, you may want to exercise a little more caution on the roadways.

The statistic comes from a recent study conducted by Allstate Insurance. For the past eight years, the insurance company has analyzed its claims data to determine the likelihood drivers in America's 200 largest cities will experience a vehicle collision compared to the national average.

This year, Sioux Falls, South Dakota was ranked the safest driving city. 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.

Here in South Florida we weren’t among the country’s safest drivers, but we also weren’t ranked as the worst. That distinction went to Washington, D.C.

"It is vital for us to educate American drivers about safe driving behaviors they can demonstrate on the road that will help make our roadways safer," Allstate's senior VP of claims, Mike Roche, said in a statement. "Minimizing distractions, obeying traffic laws, and using your car's safety features like turn signals and headlights, are all ways to be safer, no matter where you drive.”
