Since 2009, Allstate Canada has released an annual report called the Safe Driving Study, which ranks Canadian communities in terms of Allstate car collision frequency data to identify which cities are the safest.
Allstate’s 2015 Safe Driving Study also revealed collisions are trending upwards on Canadian roads, with the frequency of collisions rising nationally from 5.19 per cent in 2014’s study to 5.57 per cent in 2015. This marks a 7.3 per cent increase in collisions overall.
Help reverse the trend. By taking note of some of the findings from the study, and following a few safe driving tips, motorists may help avoid collisions. With the winter season upon us, and some of the most collision heavy days ahead, drivers need to be aware.
