The Ohio city of Cincinnati is located in Hamilton County. Perhaps the most notable thing about the city is its role in helping thousands of US slaves escape to freedom. The city was a major route on the Underground Railroad, and is currently the home of the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center. If you live in Cincinnati, then you’re in a city with powerful historical significance. However, you also live in a city that doesn’t rank well when it comes to safe driving.
Allstate found that Cincinnati is one of the top 30 US cities with unsafe drivers. Out of 200 cities, Cincinnati was ranked as having some of the nation’s worst drivers.
