D.C. drivers get into collisions on average once every 4.8 years, Jim Gorzelany reports.

"This means they're 107.3 percent more likely to get into an accident every time they take the wheel than the typical driver in the U.S., who wrecks his or her car once every 10 years."

"The Northbrook, Ill.-based insurer found the safest drivers residing in smaller cities – motorists living in U.S. cities with populations of over one million are more likely than the national average to get into accidents. Allstate says the safest drivers can be found in Fort Collins, Colo., where the average motorist experiences an auto collision only once every 14 years."
