Crime

LAS VEGAS -- A new report ranks Las Vegas drivers among the worst in the nation. According to Allstate Insurance, Las Vegas ranks 144 out of 200 of the largest cities in the country.

I-15 is said to be one of the dangerous stretches of roadway leading in and out of the valley. But the report takes data from all accidents, both fatal and non-fatal, from the highways local roads and parking lots.

An Allstate spokesperson says the rankings determine how likely it is for a driver in Las Vegas to be involved in a collision. Speed along with texting or talking while driving are often factors in crashes because drivers are simply not paying attention.

There is some good news, though. Las Vegas moved up seven spots since last year, which is credited to safety awareness programs. Still, valley drivers have along way to go.

"We all heard this before: pay attention. Get rid of distractions. Texting, I think, is really getting to everyone lately. Whether you're on the phone or texting, you're just not paying attention," said Misty Chadwick with Allstate.

The sixth annual America's Drivers Report ranks drivers in Fort Collins, Colorado as the safest and up north, Reno takes the seventh spot for safest drivers.
