If you take your vehicle to a collision center for repair and the body shop stays busy, it can mean a couple of things. Potentially a sign of a good body shop is that they’re busy. It may also have something to do with a couple of recent surveys where Texas is not ranked in the top 5 for safe drivers. Part of the reason for this is commuting and car accidents.
We all know if you drive some of San Antonio’s busiest roads frequently, especially during rush hour, you increase your risk for an accident. The two surveys give a glimpse at life driving on Texas’ busy roads and why so many are searching on their phones for “collision repair near me.”
Best Driving Records
A recent survey took a look at the number of fatal car accidents for every state and determined the five states with the best driving records. Texas is not listed in the top five and it may have something to do with the population in Texas being greater and the state having more roads than those considered to have the best driving records. The top five states are Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Minnesota, Massachusetts, and Wisconsin.
This does not reflect total number of car accidents in states, only those in which someone was killed. A San Antonio collision center, along with law enforcement, can certainly provide a better glimpse of car crashes in specific areas.
Living in a metro area like San Antonio, you probably expect traffic and long commutes. It probably doesn’t surprise anyone that Texas did not make the top 5 for Most Tolerable Commutes. South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana, Nebraska, and Wyoming made the top of the list. Texas ranks 16th from the bottom of the list with a mean travel time to work of 25 minutes.
A shorter commute does not necessarily mean you won’t have a car accident. Whether a state has the best driving record or best commute, it’s important to know which San Antonio body shop you choose to repair your vehicle, should you have an accident.
