The average driver in Kansas City has an accident every 14.9 years, while the average driver across the country has one every 10 years. And apparently they're getting increasingly worse.More news: US Supreme Court Rules States Can Fund Some Religious School Programs
While Boston's average claim gap dropped from 3.7 in 2016, the relative likelihood of a claim being filed in the city increased almost 12 percent from past year.

"The America's Best Drivers Report furthers Allstate's commitment to public safety in communities nationwide, where we advocate for smart, focused driving habits that can help reduce collisions and save lives", said Glenn Shapiro, Allstate's executive vice president of claims. In addition to Boston and Worcester taking two of the bottom three (or, depending on your perspective, top) spots, Springfield placed 196th on the list, followed closely by Providence at No. 194 and New Haven at 192. The city of McAllen was ranked 9th on the list while the city of Brownsville was ranked 2nd.More news: Backed Syrian coalition takes Raqqa district from Islamic State
