Allstate has published it’s list of the top 200 cities in the USA by how often they file collision claims. Coming in at number one for the 4th year in a row is Fort Collins, CO.
According to their data drivers in For Collins, just north of Denver, drivers can go 14.2 years between collisions as opposed to number 200, Worcester, Massachusetts, where the data reports 4.3 years between claims. Claims frequency in a city or ZIP code is one of many factors as carriers calculate your car insurance rates – along with state laws and your driving record — but it’s a big one.
According to Insurance.com a car owner with a clean record shopping for full coverage on a 2012 Honda Accord in Fort Collins, for example, would pay about $936 a year. In Denver, the same driver would pay about $1,221. Think of the money they could save if they took a defensive driving class on top of that!
