RENO – For all the complaints drivers in Reno might have, they are sure a safe group of drivers, at least according to Allstate.

The 8th Annual “Allstate America’s Best Drivers Report” was released Tuesday morning. In it, Reno is ranked as the 8th safest city. That means you are 18.4% less likely to be in a collision compared to the national average. The average amount of time between collisions per driver is 12.3 years.

Sioux Falls, South Dakota, was ranked as the safest smaller city, and Phoenix, Arizona was the safety driving city with a large population. Large is defined as having more than a million people.

More than 32,000 car crashes happen each year, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Allstate hopes this safe driving study will start a safety conversation among drivers.
