Philadelphia Drivers Among The Nation’s Worst

For all of you Philly people....LOOK OUT!!  I'm often traveling to the Philly region for work and play.  Thankfully, I've never been in an accident.  But time is not on my side given this report.  The only advice I can give is to drive defensively, don't text and make sure you have good insurance.  Many people are surprised by the number of driver who don't even have insurance or have very minimal insurance.  But you can purchase additional insurance on your own policy to protect against those irresponsible drivers-- Un-insurance and Under-insurance.  Call your agent today and double check your coverage and make sure you have these types of coverages.  As always, if you have any questions, you can always just call or email me.  Drive Safe!

According to Allstate’s 8th annual “America’s Best Drivers Report,” Philadelphia ranks as one of the least safe driving cities, landing at number six on the list. The report ranks the 200 largest cities in terms of car collision frequency.  According to the report, the average driver in Philadelphia will get into an accident every 6.1 years. Philadelphia drivers were 64.1 percent more likely to get into an accident than the average driver.
The national average is one crash every 10 years.
