Study – Austin has unsafe drivers

Allstate America’s fifth annual ranking of U.S. cities for safe driving puts Austin in a familiar position – far behind almost everyone else.

According to the study, Austin finished 179th out of 193 cities ranked.

Practical Tip

Choosing an attorney to represent you is an important but daunting task. The decision certainly should not be made on the basis of advertising alone. The Yellow Pages and internet are filled with ads--all of which say basically the same thing.You should not hire based solely on advertising--anyone can buy a slick commercial or a slick website.

Andrew Traub

On average, the Austin-area driver will have an accident once every seven years.  In 2005, the study’s first year, Austin ranked 176th of 196 cities, with a wreck every 7.5 years for the average driver.

The national average, based on accident claims made in 2006 and 2007 against Allstate insurance policies in which there was property damage, was an accident about once in 10.1 years.
