SmartAsset recently conducted a study to determine the safest cities  in the United States.

Analyzing data from 200 large cities, they considered metrics such as violent crime, property crime, vehicular mortality rate, drug poisoning mortality rate, and excessive drinking.

The findings revealed that Texas cities performed well in terms of safety, with four of the top five cities located in the Lone Star State. Interestingly, the top-ranked cities were also relatively affordable, with housing costs being less than 20% of median household income in most cases.

Additionally, among cities with over 1 million residents, Los Angeles emerged as the safest.
