Allstate released its list of the top ten cities with the worst drivers and I’m surprised that New Orleans isn’t on it.  However, looking at the list, all but one of the cities is part of the original 13 colonies; maybe the Eastern Seaboard arrogance extends to driving amongst themselves as well.  Anyone driving, or motorcycling, in those areas, please be careful.   I also remember I couldn’t stand the people I encountered in Alexandria, VA, suspect it’s probably Sharkville, USA.

And here’s the rogues gallery of the 10 cities having the worst drivers in the nation:

  1. Worcester, MA: 4.3 years between accidents, 134.8% more likely to get in an accident.
  2. Boston, MA: 4.4 years between accidents, 129.9% more likely to get in an accident.
  3. Washington, DC: 5.1 years between accidents, 97.3% more likely to get in an accident.
  4. Springfield, MA: 5.4 years between accidents, 85.8% more likely to get in an accident.
  5. Providence, RI: 5.4 years between accidents, 85.1% more likely to get in an accident.
  6. Baltimore, MD: 5.4 years between accidents, 84.9% more likely to get in an accident.
  7. Glendale, CA: 5.8 years between accidents, 72.6% more likely to get in an accident.
  8. Alexandria, VA: 5.9 years between accidents, 68.2% more likely to get in an accident.
  9. Philadelphia, PA: 6.2 years between accidents, 61.2% more likely to get in an accident.
  10. New Haven, CT: 6.3 years between accidents, 59.1% more likely to get in an accident.
