Drivers in Seattle and Tacoma have a better chance of being involved in car crash than the American average driver, according to a recent study conducted by Allstate Insurance on America’s safest driving cities.


The study, titled “Allstate America’s Best Drivers Report,” is the insurance giant’s ninth annual snapshot into the best – and worst – driving cities in America. Our car accident lawyers in Tacoma know that auto accidents are more likely in densely populated areas, but drivers can take steps to reduce the risk of a crash.

Survey finds Seattle drivers face increased accident risk

Allstate America’s Best Drivers Report ranks cities based on their population and Allstate car accident claims in the cities. With up to 10% of all drivers nationwide insured by Allstate, the study has offered valuable insight into the causes – and locations – of car accidents nationwide for a decade.

Seattle ranks 160th out of America’s 200 largest cities. The study found that when compared to the national average, Seattle drivers were 28.8 percent more likely to be involved in an accident. Coming in at 144th on the list, Tacoma fared slightly better, with drivers facing a 23.9 percent higher chance of being in a crash compared to the national average.
