SEATTLE -- A new report reveals which cities have the worst drivers in America, and Western Washington drivers ranked among the worst.

"America's Best Drivers Report" by Allstate ranked drivers in U.S. cities from one to 193, one being the best and 193 the worst.

Three cities in Western Washington came in toward the bottom. Seattle sits at 147, Bellevue at 145 and Tacoma at 141. According to the report, an average driver in those cities will experience an auto accident every eight years.

The study is based on results of the frequency of auto accidents, which can result in property claim damage.

While Seattle, Bellevue and Tacoma ranked low, the worst drivers are in Washington, D.C., where the average driver will get into an auto accident every 4-5 years.

The city that received top honors for having the safest drivers is Fort Collins, Colorado.
