Allstate Insurance released statistics for top safe-driving areas in most of the nation. Not all areas were covered as they don't write policies in parts of the northeast. Data is from Allstate files, not a total set of national stats for all companies and state motor vehicle departments.

Colorado came out looking pretty good.

FORT COLLINS was second, with each driver having a collision each 13.2 years.

COLORADO SPRINGS was ninth, with each driver having a collision each 12.3 years.

For cities between 500,000 and 1,000,000 in population, DENVER was fifth, with each driver having a collision each 10.7 years.

National Average is for each driver to have a collision each 10.0 years.

Newark, N.J., drivers were most at risk, with an accident each 5.0 years.

Washington, D.C., was next-to-last at 5.1 years. I know, we just moved from there, it's a dreadful to drive, as is Northern Virginia.

Mike where did you find your information? I found 2005 data which actually lists Lakewood #8 but I can't find 2006.

That was reported in the Colorado Springs Gazette on Thursday, 25 May 2006. At this time, this link works: http://www.gazette.com/display.php?secid=4 (broken link) but may not work for very long.

That is amazing seeing as how so many drivers in COS ignore red lights, stop signs and speed limits.
