[title] The Best and Worst Cities in America for Drivers [/title]
I’ve lived in Boston for just a year which has been enough time for me to learn that I hate to drive here. Driving in Boston is a lot like anarchy. So when I discovered Allstate’s yearly 2016 America’s Best Driver’s Report, I was both humored and validated to find that Boston has indeed claimed the top #1 spot out of over 200 hundred cities. I always tell people to drive in Boston like there are no rules. But the study also finds that Boston ranks the worst as far as the two major variables that correlate to accidents: population density and weather.
