USA- According to an online news report published on KNBR.com, the average American travels up to 13,000 miles every year. While 2020 initially saw a reduction in traffic thanks to the pandemic, the levels appear to have returned to normal. Normal may not be a good thing when it comes to the rate of car crashes in the United States. The good news is though that traffic accident-related deaths are dropping nationally. The safety gains have not been uniformed throughout the country, though, and while some states are still far less safe than average, others should get credit for improving road safety in their regions.
Insurify provided a list of the safest city per state. The organization is well-suited to make such determination, given the data that they collect when setting insurance rates. Information including drunk driving, speeding, and other moving violations is compiled into a list and can be used to understand the risks of crashes taking place in various places or involving certain drivers.
When it comes to the northeast, the number of crash deaths increased even with a decline in deadly collisions overall. While all but one of ten regions experienced a rise in wrecks, the northeast saw a two percent rise in fatalities. That region includes New York, New Jersey, and the New England states.
Still, there are cities in all of those states that are credited for improving their own safety. The safest cities were those that had the fewest DUIs, speeding violations, red-light running crashes, and other risky driver behaviors. In New York, New York City ranked as the state’s safest city. Opa-Locka secured the number one spot in Florida, and Camden is the safest city for drivers in the state of New Jersey.
