In Allstate's latest annual list, Sioux Falls is safest and Washington, D.C., is most dangerous.

Sioux Falls in South Dakota is the safest American city to drive in, according to a new study.

Car collisions happen there 27.6 percent less often than the national average. And that’s not a fluke – the city’s taken the top spot in five out of the eight years Allstate has released an America’s Best Drivers Report. The study ranks the 195 largest cities by the frequency of reported accidents in insurance claims data. Here are the top 10 safest cities:
