Springs named second safest city in U.S.

COLORADO SPRINGS, COLO. -- Colorado Springs has been named the second safest city in America by InsuranceProviders.com.

The study took into account crime rates, probability of natural disasters and driving safety.

The main reason for the high ranking was the city's disaster ranking. Because it is up on the edge of the mountains, tornadoes are not common, and it is obviously not near a coast, so tropical storms are nonexistent.

Crime rates are lower than cities of comparable sizes, but officials with the study said crime rates ended up not being as big a factor in cities that ranked safe as it was in cities that ranked unsafe.

In terms of driving, Colorado Springs residents go an average of 11.9 years without getting into a crash.

Mesa, Ariz. was the only city listed as being safer than Colorado Springs. Aurora, Colo. also finished in the top 10, coming in at number nine.
