George Carlin divided American drivers into two classes; those going slower than him were ****idiots; those going faster than him, **** lunatics. Another way to parse drivers is in a new study by Allstate Insurance has ranked the top 200 American cities by frequency of accidents, from best to worst.

The report grades cities by the collision frequency of those covered by Allstate insurance, and a two-year average is used to smooth out anomalies.
