Is it safe?
If you’re in Plano, absolutely. So says Forbes.com, which has deemed the Dallas suburb “America’s Safest City.”
Plano, the only Texas city to land in the top ten on Forbes list, has the lowest violent crime rate of all big American cities, according to Forbes. It also has a much lower rate of fatal car accidents.
Coming in behind Plano were Portland, Ore.; Honolulu, Hawaii; San Jose, Calif.; Omaha, Neb.; New York, N.Y.; Santa Ana, Calif.; Anaheim, Calif.; San Diego, Calif.; and Glendale, Calif.
To determine which cities are the safest, Forbes writers studied violent crime data compiled by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and traffic fatality data compiled by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
