This ranking system, which was reported through work with Allstate Insurance, notes that Pittsburgh drivers have an accident roughly every 6 ½ years, as opposed to the top-ranking city of Fort Collins, Colorado, which as an accident rate per driver of 14.2 years. Philadelphia scored even lower on the list, ranking 192/200. According to the article from the Pittsburgh Tribune, "Allstate compiles the report based on accidents customers reported in 2011 and 2012. Allstate has about 10 percent of auto insurance policies nationwide." On the opposite end of this ranking, the article also states that "PennDOT statistics show accidents statewide declined in the past decade even as the number of registered vehicles increased. PennDOT recorded 124,149 crashes in 2013 compared to 140,197 in 2003, an 11.4 percent decrease."
