Waco ranks as one of the safest cities for driving in Texas

A study recently published by QuoteWizard cites Waco as being one of the cities with the safest drivers in Texas.

The researchers took a variety of factors into account, including how many car crashes occurred in the city in order to reach this conclusion. During the most recent reporting year of 2017, there were only 3,500 automobile accidents reported. This was the seventh lowest number of crashes of any city in the state.

Also on the list of the 15 safest cities for driving in Texas, it listed the nearby town of Corsicana. There were less than 750 crashes there in 2017. This earned it a ranking of 12 on the list.

In case you're wondering what city took the top spot on the list, it was Eagle Pass. The only other cities that performed better than Waco were Brownsville, Edinburg, Marshall, Lufkin and Laredo.

QuoteWizard's research also shows that Texas, as a whole, performed better than 21 other states in the country in terms of having safe drivers. In 2017, there were nearly a quarter of a million traffic crashes statewide.

In addition to car crash data, the researchers also reportedly considered the number of traffic citations issued and how many driving while intoxicated (DWI) arrests there were when determining how cities and states ranked.

When crashes occur in Waco, they often happen along Interstate 35, which is a main corridor that connects McLennan County to other popular cities including San Antonio and Austin. Car crashes, and especially those that occur at fast rates of speed on the highway, often result in life-threatening injuries. An experienced attorney can advise you of your right to compensation if you've suffered injuries.
