Traffic Safety in Fort Collins

In 2013, Allstate Insurance Company released its ninth annual "Allstate America’s Best Drivers Report™." Fort Collins topped the list for the third time in the report’s nine-year history. Thank you to the many citizens who have contributed to this safe driving record. It demonstrates another reason why Fort Collins is a great place to live, work and play. While the traffic safety record in Fort Collins is good compared to other communities, we still have room for improvement. In 2012 there were more than 3,500 reported traffic crashes in our city. With three lives lost, more than 800 people injured and an economic impact estimated at about $113 million, Fort Collins has plenty of reasons to not rest on our laurels.
