Anyone who has driven through the roads and highways of Miami-Dade knows that it’s not a cakewalk, in fact, it’s far from that. The "Allstate America's Best Drivers Report", released Tuesday, has confirmed this: two cities in the 305 made the bottom 10 on the list.
Hialeah drivers are the fourth worst in the country, according to Allstate, and Miami drivers are ninth. Guess our locally beloved "three cars can turn left on a red" rule isn't earning us any bonus points.
The survey was taken over a two-year period in most cities across the country, studying how many accidents occurred where. Hialeah drivers have a 77 percent greater chance of getting into an accident -- over the national average of one "auto collision" every 10 years -- while Miami drivers have a 58.4 percent greater chance.
Allstate noted that while there are about 32,000 car crash fatalities every year in the United States, that mark is the fewest there have been since 1949.
Washington, D.C. lead the pack with 112.1 percent. Sioux Falls, on the other hand, was found to be the safest city in the country with a 27.6 less chance of getting into an accident when compared to the national average.
Now, if we could only get people to start using their turn signals and side-view mirrors...
