Lubbock gets an 'F' in safe driving study

Lubbock got an "F" from Men's Health magazine recently, coming in at No. 88 on a list of safe places to drive.

The worst possible score is 100, so only 12 cities scored worse than the Hub City, including Ft. Worth at No. 89 and St. Louis at No. 100.

St. Paul, Minnesota came it at No. 1, followed by Lincoln, Nebraska and Boston, Massachusetts.

The study tabulated the rate of fatal crashes; the percentage of fatalities involving alcohol, speeding, or hit and run; and the rate of seatbelt use from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Then they factored in the average number of years between accidents using data from Allstate and laws on cellphone use while driving from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, and city governments.
