Boston drivers ranked worst in the country third year in a row

Boston drivers ranked worst in the country third year in a row

The average driver in Kansas City has an accident every 14.9 years, while the average driver across the country has one every 10 years.

The 13th annual Allstate America's Best Drivers Report names Kansas City, Kansas, the city with America's safest drivers. And apparently they're getting increasingly worse.

In Worcester, drivers will average 4.3 years between claims, compared to 5.3 years in Springfield and 5.7 years in Providence.

Allstate is reminding drivers to drive safely this 4th of July weekend by releasing a new list of the safest cities in the United States.

Taking into account factors like the average year between accident claims and number hard-breaking events per year, Boston and several other MA cities scrapped the barrel.

Boston also ranked at the very bottom of last year's survey too, according to the data.

"The America's Best Drivers Report furthers Allstate's commitment to public safety in communities nationwide, where we advocate for smart, focused driving habits that can help reduce collisions and save lives", said Glenn Shapiro, Allstate's executive vice president of claims. Rankings are determined by measuring three things: average years between claims, relative claim likelihood (compared to the national average), and 2017 hard-braking events per 1,000 miles. In this year's study, Worcester even improved to third-worst in the country, surpassing Baltimore.

Bridgeport, Connecticut is the highest-ranked city in New England on the list... at No. 189.
