Cincinnati is home to the worst drivers in Ohio, according to the Allstate Insurance Agency’s “America’s Best Drivers Report,” which ranked the Queen City 160 out of 200.
The annual report evaluates the 200 largest cities in the U.S., citing claim data and relative collision likelihood to determine where the worst drivers are located. According to the report, the average driver in Cincinnati will be in an accident every 7.7 years, while the national average is every 10 years.
Cincinnati’s rankings were also poor when factoring in population density and precipitation. When the report added those two factors, the Queen City ranked 162 and 158 respectively.
The report ranked other Ohio cities, including:
- 32. Akron
- 38. Dayton
- 51. Toledo
- 68. Cleveland
- 121. Columbus
The best drivers in our region of the country are in Lexington, which was ranked 25. Two other big cities in our region, Indianapolis and Louisville, were ranked 62 and 85 respectively.
There was some good news for Cincinnati in the best drivers report: Cincinnati was found to have the 10th shortest average commute time in the U.S.
This report is not the first instance where Cincinnati has been ranked poorly for its drivers. Last year, Thrillist ranked Cincinnati drivers as the 17th worst in the country.
Allstate says this report is meant to expand conversation about driving safety throughout the nation, while boosting U.S. drivers’ awareness of safe driving practices.
