SAFE DRIVING ANYWHERE

Leave the Phone Alone
If you’re traveling at 55 mph, you could travel the length of a football field in the time it takes you to read and respond to a text.



Follow at a Safe Distance
Allow 5 seconds of stopping time between you and the car in front of you, so you can react to the unexpected.



Stick to the Speed Limit
Those numbers are there for a reason.



Give ‘Em Space
Big trucks have limited visibility. Motorcycles face extra road challenges. Give both extra space.



Be Prepared
Listen to traffic reports, and build in plenty of travel time.

Brownsville, Texas — Safest City Drivers, Factoring in Precipitation Down on the banks of the Rio Grande, Brownsville’s subtropical climate makes it vulnerable to flash floods and cloudbursts. Rainfall around those parts sometimes reaches 38 inches per year. But tough municipal traffic laws helped this city’s drivers place second after Fort Collins, factoring in all conditions, and first if you factor in precipitation.

Did you know? Laredo was the only other city in the Lone Star State whose drivers made it into the top 10 safest driving cities, factoring in all conditions.

Kansas City, Missouri — Fewest Accidents, Factoring in Population This heartland city isn’t just famous for its BBQ. This city’s 467,007 people are the least likely to get into an accident in the U.S.

Did you know? One of its improvements is a new “diverging diamond” interchange at I-29 and Tiffany Springs — making Kansas City one of the first cities in the U.S. to use this brand-new highway design.
