STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

It involves driving in Boston - Allstate Insurance has a new ranking of cities with the riskiest drivers and Boston is ranked number 1. According to this study, Bostonians get into an accident, on average, every four years.

GREENE: Now, if you're looking for a more relaxed driving experience, try a place with a more relaxed Western accent - Fort Collins, Colorado.

INSKEEP: They're the nation's safest drivers, only averaging a collision every 14 years.

GREENE: That's the Business News on MORNING EDITION from NPR News. I'm David Greene.

INSKEEP: And I'm Steve Inskeep.

GREENE: We'll leave a light on for you. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
