Today's last word in Business involves your car - or rather, your (imitating a Boston accent) car.


It involves driving in Boston - Allstate Insurance has a new ranking of cities with the riskiest drivers and Boston is ranked number 1. According to this study, Bostonians get into an accident, on average, every four years.

INSKEEP: They're the nation's safest drivers, only averaging a collision every 14 years.

GREENE: That's the Business News on MORNING EDITION from NPR News. I'm David Greene.

INSKEEP: And I'm Steve Inskeep.
