Plano named “America's Safest City” in Forbes magazine’s annual ranking
Plano, the only Texas city to land in the top 10 on the 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.
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. (10/12/10)
