Fort Worth Ranks Among Top 25 Most Dangerous Cities for Driving
Fort Worth ranks among the top 25 most dangerous cities for driving in the United States.
According to Daily American, the North Central city ranked 21 out of 25 of dangerous cities.
The top five cities listed included:
- Baton Rouge, LA (23.1 fatalities per 100,000 people)
- Savannah, GA (15.7 fatalities per 100,000 people)
- Dallas, TX (14.5 fatalities per 100,000 people)
- Detroit, MI (15.3 fatalities per 100,000 people)
- Louis, MO (18.1 per 100,000 people)
In addition to Fort Worth, the bottom five cities of the same list included Cincinnati (OH), San Bernardino (CA), Portland (OR), Fresno (CA) and Orlando, FL.
This aligns with a report published by the City of Fort Worth on its official website that shows there has been an overall increase across the board of accident categories – including traffic fatalities (15.8% increase), injury accidents (13.9%), as well as pedestrian accidents and fatalities (9.4% and 32.3% respectively.)
The Daily American states that the study was conducted by researchers from a car insurance website. The researchers compiled a collection of data from the FBI Uniform Crime Reporting Program, fatality analyses from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), and comparative climatic data from the National Centers for Environmental Information.
Based on the collected data, the largest U.S. cities were examined and assessed based on the likelihood of an accident, the average fatality rate of motor vehicle accidents and the number of precipitation days each year.
