Allstate recently released the results of its annual “Allstate America’s Best Drivers Report,” and awarded Brownsville as the safest driving city in the Lone Star State. Based on Allstate’s claims data, the report ranks America’s 200 largest cities according to car collisions.

Brownsville ranked 25th nationwide; last year Laredo was the state’s safest city. Fort Worth ranked in at 138 and Dallas held the 167th spot.

Brownsville Ranked Safest Driving City in Texas

Allstate’s Regional Vice President for Texas Region, Phil Lawson, stated, “We want to recognize the city of Brownsville for being the safest driving city in Texas, and whether you drive in a large city, small city or a rural area, we encourage all Americans to practice safe driving habits and good car safety.”

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, car crash fatalities are at the lowest level they’ve been since 1949, but still average more than 32,000 every year.
