Maryland Drivers Fare Poorly in Allstate Survey Results

University of Maryland professor Kenneth Beck conducts transportation studies for Maryland's Highway Safety Office. Concerning Maryland's drivers, he says that, "There's not a week that goes by that I don't see someone doing something incredibly stupid or aggressive."

The comment would seem to be supported by Allstate Insurance Company, which has just released its sixth annual survey entitled "America's Best Drivers Report. The survey analyzes claim data to determine a driver's odds of getting into a car accident in a certain area when considered with the national average.

You won't find Maryland drivers near the top of the list. In fact, out of 200 measured metropolitan areas across the country, Baltimore motorists ranked 192nd. Drivers in Washington, D.C., were a notch below, at 193. The rankings for both areas are exactly the same as last year.

The findings don't surprise traffic experts, but they say that the singular traffic circumstances of the region - not just driver error - contribute mightily to the scores. Beck, for example, points to the comparatively large number of motorists in Maryland.

"There's a lot of crazy things going on out there," says David Humphreys, executive director of the Annapolis Regional Transportation Management Association. "Route 50 is just an extension of the Capital Beltway."

Drivers in Fort Collins, Colorado, topped the list. Allstate says that a driver there will average one accident about every 14.5 years. In Baltimore, that number is five years.
