US: safe and least safe cities for drivers in bad weather image

The National Safety Council (NSC) warns us that winter time is the one with the highest number of victims due to car crashes.

It predicts that 346 persons will die and other 41,900 will get seriously injured over the winter holidays.
Deborah A.P. Hersman, president and CEO of NSC advises drivers that “When you are traveling, remember that you are your car’s most important safety feature. Getting to zero deaths on our roadways requires each of us to be safer behind the wheel.”

According to the annual study “Best drivers” from the Allstate Insurance, Boston is the worst city in the U.S. to drive in whether it is raining or snowing as drivers get there into an accident at a 157.7% more frequent rate than the national average. It is followed up close by Baltimore in Maryland and Washington. Allstates names Kansas City the safest town for drivers where you are 24.8% less likely to get in a car crash, followed by Cape Coral in Florida and Brownsville in Texas.
