Detroit fact of the day

Among cities with more than 500,000 residents, Detroit has the
safest drivers, with accident rates that are 20 percent below the
national average.

For cities with more than 1 million residents, Phoenix has the
safest big-city commuters, with accident rates about equal to the
national average.

Here is much more, Philadelphia is a disaster and L.A. isn’t so safe either.  I wonder to what extent these rankings simply proxy for traffic density.  Here are some charts.  Overall Sioux Falls, Tucson, and El Paso seem to be relatively safe cities for driving.
