We did it! For the sixth year in a row, the Allstate America’s Best Drivers Report has deemed DC drivers as the nation’s worst. Of the 193 cities surveyed, Washington motorists were 95.5 percent more likely than the nation’s average driver to have a car accident. Our drivers also average just 5.1 years between collisions. While other cities may lay claim to safer streets and less threatened pedestrians, none can compete with our breathtaking show of consistency in rankings.

As for the country’s second worst drivers, that honor would reside with our fair friends to the north, the Baltimoreans. Way to go, DMV.
