ALEXANDRIA, VA. — Blame it on the Beltway traffic. Alexandria drivers are the 192nd safest out of the 200 largest cities in America, according to Allstate's annual "best drivers" report. The report, released Tuesday ahead of the dangerous July 4th holiday, ranks cities based on crash frequency using the insurance giant's internal claims data.

Alexandria drivers have an average 6.2 years between insurance claims for crashes; the national average is 10.57 years. The city has 27.5 hard-breaking events per 1,000 miles compared to the national average of 19 hard-breaking events per 1,000 miles.

Drivers in Alexandria landed behind its Virginia counterparts. Chesapeake came in at 46, Virginia Beach at 66 and Newport News at 78. Alexandria's neighbor Arlington was the 168th safest driving city.
