The Ten Safest States for Drivers

With Americans logging more than 3 trillion miles a year, the risk of being involved in an auto accident is pretty high. In 2012, there were more than 5.6 million reported crashes, and almost 31,000 of those were fatal.

Obrella, a community-focused insurance and analysis agency recently released a report citing the 10 safest states for drivers. New England is the safest part of the country to drive in – four of the states are located in this area. If you live in the South, better make sure your car insurance is paid up – southern states scored very low on the list.

The states were ranked based on the fatality rate per 100,000 licensed drivers. The source of the data was the 2012 National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report.
