Providence, RI: 80.9%
Hialeah, FL: 77.6%
Glendale, CA: 77.5%
Philadelphia, PA: 64.1%
Alexandria, VA: 62.6%

The fine print: the 2012 Allstate Americaís Best Driverís Report is based on an actuarial analysis of company claim data among the nationís 200 largest cities. Property damage claims were analyzed over a two-year period (from January 2009 to December 2010) to ensure the findings would not be impacted by external influences such as weather or road construction. A weighted average of the two-year numbers determined the annual percentages. The report defines an auto crash as any collision resulting in a property damage claim.
DC is all politicians and other prostitutes. It's not that the drivers are bad, it's just that everyone is in a rush to connect. And Baltimore is a suburb of DC.
