An average driver living in Arlington, Texas gets involved in a car crash every 7.3 years, making this city the 25th most dangerous city to drive in. One of the reasons for this car crash statistic might be the fact that Arlington is currently the largest city in the United States not served by a comprehensive public transportation system, forcing its residents to drive more often.


Portland, Oregon

Portland, the largest city in the state of Oregon, is another city where drivers don’t feel safe.
