California Drivers Suck!

Jim Gorzelony of Forbes writes for NBC News on an Allstate auto insurance claims frequency study and asserts:
Allstate studied the auto insurance claims frequency of America’s 200 largest cities and found that residents of our nation’s capital were found to get into collisions on average once every 4.7 years. This means they’re a whopping 112.1 percent more likely to be party to an accident than the typical driver in the U.S., who wrecks his or her car once every 10 years. 
Taken on a statewide basis, California would seem to have the worst drivers overall, placing five cities among the top 25, including Glendale (5), San Francisco (10), Los Angeles (14), Fullerton (16) and Torr[a]nce [sic] (22). New Jersey came in a close second with four cities among the top 25, with Florida and Virginia tied for third with three cities each.
