Safest Cities For Driving
People often worry about the safety of air travel, but the odds of a passenger dying in a plane crash are 1 in 9,821, while the odds of meeting your maker in a car accident are 1 in 114. Driving, that is, can be a dangerous activity.
In fact, while the pandemic kept many drivers off the roads in 2020, with Americans covering 13% fewer miles than in the previous year, traffic deaths actually increased. Some 42,060 people died in vehicle accidents last year, according to the National Safety Council, representing an 8% increase over 2019.
Some places are safer to drive than others, though, and while we don’t necessarily have a choice about where we drive, it’s instructive to learn which cities have the fewest collisions and traffic deaths per capita.
24/7 Wall St. looked at collision and fatality data from 194 cities across the United States to assemble a list of the 25 safest cities to drive. (Picking a new car for your safe city? Be careful when you do, because these new cars are most likely to break down.)
The list covers some 17 states, and includes cities all the way from Anchorage, Alaska, to Port St. Lucie, Florida. Arizona takes the safety prize with four cities in the top 25, and you may be surprised to learn that New York City made the cut, along with two of its busiest commuter cities — Jersey City, New Jersey, and Yonkers, New York. These, on the other hand, are America’s worst cities to drive in.

States With the Most Cases of COVID-19
As the omicron variant spreads, new daily cases of COVID-19 have hit new highs in the United States.
Since the first known case was identified in the U.S. on Jan. 21, 2020, there have been a total of 67,437,400 reported cases of COVID-19 nationwide — or 20,612 per 100,000 people. Of course, infections are not evenly spread across the country, and some states have far higher infections rates per capita than others. The number of confirmed cases per 100,000 people ranges from as low as 12,174 to as high as 30,014, depending on the state.
Though the first case of the novel coronavirus in the United States was on the West Coast, the early epicenter of the outbreak was on the other side of the country, in New York City. In the months since, the parts of the country hit hardest by the virus shifted to the Southeast, the Midwest, and California.
The severity of a COVID-19 outbreak across a given state is subject to a wide range of factors. Still, states that had a hands-off approach in the early days of the pandemic are more likely to be worse off today than those that adopted strict measures to control the spread. Arkansas, Iowa, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming were the only states that did not issue a statewide stay-at-home order in March or early April — and of those states, all eight currently have a higher infection rate than the U.S. as a whole.
