Report: Cincinnati has worst drivers in Ohio

CINCINNATI (FOX19) - An annual study claims drivers in Cincinnati are among the worst in the state of Ohio.

Allstate Insurance Agency ranks the Queen City at 160 out of 200 in its "America's Best Drivers Report." The report looks at the country's largest 200 cities to determine how often drivers get into collisions, based on Allstate's claim data.

Here is how Ohio's six major cities ranked:

32: Akron

38: Dayton

51: Toledo

68: Cleveland

121: Columbus

160: Cincinnati

The report shows the average Cincinnati driver will experience a collision every 7.7 years, compared to the national average of every 10 years.

Cincinnati ranks 162 when factoring in population density and 158 when considering precipitation.

Brownsville, Texas is the safest-driving city on the list. Boston is named the worst safe-driving city.

The report was released ahead of the July Fourth holiday - which the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety found is the deadliest day of the year on average for drivers.
