Drivers in Boise, Idaho, are the country’s safest when taking into account population density, according to the newest set of rankings from the 2019 Allstate America’s Best Drivers Report.

Understanding there are many factors that contribute to car crashes, including number of cars on the road, Allstate standardizes the rankings to level the playing field between drivers in densely populated areas and their counterparts in smaller cities.

To spur positive change in communities, Allstate is lending a helping hand by offering $150,000 in grants that can be used for safety improvement projects on the 15 “Risky Roads” identified in June in recognition of the 15th anniversary of the America’s Best Drivers Report.

Local safety experts are working with Allstate to determine which projects will make a positive impact for motorists driving on these crash-prone streets.

These are the 15 safest driving cities in America when accounting for population density:

The new list of the safest 200 cities is being released leading up to the Labor Day weekend and back-to-school season to encourage motorists to be extra cautious during this busy travel time.

Using Allstate claims data, Allstate analysts use a predictive model to compare each city’s collision frequency when factoring in its population – resulting in large jumps for dense cities like New York City (up 92 spots), Jersey City (up 74 spots), Chicago (up 49 spots) and Miami (up 47 spots), when compared to the list that doesn’t take population density into account.
