Boise ranked with some of the safest drivers!

This post comes from Des Toups at partner site Insurance.com.


Insurance.com on MSN MoneyThe safest drivers in America, for the fourth year in a row, hail from Fort Collins, Colorado, according to the 10th annual “Allstate America’s Best Drivers Report.”

On average, nationwide, drivers can expect a collision about every 10 years, Allstate says.


Claims frequency in a city or ZIP code is one of many factors as carriers calculate your car insurance rates – along with state laws and your driving record -- but it’s a big one.


A car owner with a clean record shopping for full coverage on a 2012 Honda Accord in Fort Collins, for example, would pay about $936 a year. In Denver, the same driver would pay about $1,221, according to an average of rates from six carriers gathered by Insurance.com.


Here are the safest-driving cities in America, according to Allstate, along with the number of years a driver can expect to go between collision claims:

  1. Fort Collins, Colorado       14.2

  2. Brownsville, Texas 14.2

  3. Boise, Idaho 14

  4. Kansas City, Kansas        12.9

  5. Huntsville, Alabama 12.6

  6. Montgomery, Alabama 12.4

  7. Visalia, California             12.4

  8. Laredo, Texas                  12.2

  9. Madison, Wisconsin          12.2

  10. Olathe, Kansas                 12.1
