Tampa Ranked One Of The Most Dangerous Driving Cities
"The 2016 Allstate America's Best Drivers Report® is an annual ranking that identifies which of the 200 largest U.S. cities and the surrounding suburban metropolitan areas have the safest drivers. Sharing this data every year highlights the importance of educating people about safe driving."
Tampa is the 108th safest driving city. However, this is actual improvement from it's 131st ranking in 2015.
The Allstate America's Best Drivers Report® tabulates property damage frequency of Allstate insured drivers from 2013-2014. The report analyzes the 200 largest cities from the U.S. Census Bureau's Annual Estimates of the Population for Incorporated Places over 50,000, measured for 2014 as of July 1, 2015. In prior years, neighboring cities that shared zip codes also shared rankings. This only impacted a minimal number of cities; however, since 2014, the report used geolocation to increase accuracy and there are no longer shared rankings. U.S. Census Bureau estimates of land area were combined with population estimates to determine population density. The Allstate 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. 1 Hard-braking data for cities and their surrounding suburbs is based on information from customers voluntarily enrolled in Allstate's Drivewise® telematics program from 2010-2015. Areas with limited measurable data, or where Drivewise was unavailable (California, North Carolina, South Carolina and Texas), are excluded. 2 Suburban areas with less than 100 auto property damage claims reported between January 2013 and December 2014 have their property damage claim frequencies excluded from the data set.
