The city dropped into the bottom slot last year in the annual Best Driver’s Report — based on the average number of claims per driver and the company’s Drivewise app, which monitors driver behavior — after being ranked second-worst in 2017.
Baltimore drivers went an average of 4.2 years between claims, less than half of the national average of 10 years, according to the insurer. They had an average 30.6 “hard-braking events” per 1,000 miles, far more than the national average of 19 per 1,000 miles, Allstate said.
Baltimore drivers have never fared well in the rankings. They have consistently ranked in the bottom 10 during the last decade.
