BERKELEY, CALIFORNIA - JULY 25: Traffic backs up along Interstate 880 on July 25, 2019 in Oakland, California. The State of California and four of the largest automakers in the world - Ford, VW, Honda and BMW - have struck a deal to reduce auto emissions in the State of California ahead of the Trump administration's plans to eliminate an Obama-era regulation to reduce emissions from cars that are believed to contribute to global warming.

Being born & raised in North Carolina…there’s not a single place I’ve been in NC where I would “complement” the driving. Just about every bad driver I’ve ever come across thinks they’re excellent drivers, but with the number of accidents we see on the road…clearly, there are some sheep in wolves clothes! Allstate Insurance looked at claims across the top 200 cities in the country to determine which cities have the safest drivers. I can’t believe I’m going to say this but… an NC city made that list!

Top Ten Safest Driving Cities

  1. Boise, ID
  2. Brownsville, TX
  3. Laredo, TX
  4. Fort Collins, CO
  5. Madison, WI
  6. Olathe, KS
  7. Overland Park, KS
  8. McCallen, TX
  9. Cary, NC
  10. Miami, FL


I’m from Raleigh, NC so I’m very familiar with Cary, NC. It’s like the Ballantyne to Charlotte. Cary has been nicknamed “Central Area of Relocated Yankees.” Basically meaning a bunch of people from up north now live down south. Which might be a big reason as to why it’s one of the safest cities to drive in, because northerners KNOW how to drive, and the south has better driving conditions. Just a thought!
