Allstate Insurance Company recently issued its Best Drivers Report, which gauges the likelihood of auto accidents in a given area and the average number of years between accidents for drivers in that area. Allstate ranked Orlando 149th out of 193 metropolitan areas in their report, with first place being the best and safest place to drive in the country and 193rd place the worst and most dangerous. Our city’s poor ranking in the report will come as no surprise to James O. Cunningham and other Orlando personal injury lawyers. They have a great deal of experience representing people injured in accidents involving automobiles and see the effects of automobile accidents on a regular basis.
Allstate found that Orlando drivers are 25 percent more likely to be involved in a car accident than drivers in other cities are. The report also said that an Orlando driver will average one auto accident every eight years while the national average for drivers is one auto accident every ten years. The report named Fort Collins, CO as the safest city to drive in the country. Drivers there are 28.6 percent less likely to be involved in an auto accident than the national average, with each driver involved in an accident once every 14 years. Where is the most dangerous place to drive in the country? Washington, D.C., where drivers are 107.3 percent more likely to be involved in an accident and each driver is in an accident every 4.8 years.
Our area’s ranking won’t come as any surprise to Orlando-area drivers, either. Indeed, hardly a day passes for area commuters without them seeing at least one driver running a red light, passing someone illegally on the right, talking and/or texting on a cell phone and many other dangerous and negligent activities.
