The Allstate Insurance Company released its eighth annual "Allstate America's Best Drivers Report™."
Tulsa came in 95th on the list. The report, based on Allstate claims data, ranks America's 200 largest cities in terms of car collision frequency to find the cities with the safest drivers.
This year's top honor of "America's Safest Driving City" is Sioux Falls, South Dakota, the fifth time in the history of the report that the city has held the top spot. According to the report, the average driver in Sioux Falls will experience an auto collision every 13.8 years, which is 27.6 percent less likely than the national average of 10 years.
According to reports the average Tulsa driver goes 9.4 years between accidents.
"Allstate's Best Driver's Report was created to boost the country's discussion on safe driving. Each year we hope the report will increase awareness about the importance of being tolerant and attentive behind the wheel," said Mike Roche, senior vice president of claims, Allstate.
Car crash fatalities are at the lowest level they've been since 1949, but still average more than 32,000 every year, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
