ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) — St. Paul was the only city to earn an “A+” rating for driving safety, according to a recently released study.

The magazine Men’s Health released the rankings on Tuesday, and St. Paul was ranked at the very top.

The list was ranked according to a number of factors, including the number and rate of fatal crashes, the percentage of fatalities connected with alcohol or speeding, and the rate of seatbelt usage.

Two other cities earned “A-” ratings — Lincoln, Neb. and Boston, Mass. — but the rest of the list was ranked at a “B+” level or below.

Madison, Wis. was ranked ninth on the list, and Minneapolis didn’t even make the list’s top ten. St. Paul’s twin city was ranked 20th overall, earning a “B-” rating.

No fewer than 18 cities on the list of 100 earned “F” ratings, with St. Louis, Mo. ranked as the very worst in the nation.
