CBS News/SmartAsset has released a survey of the safety of the country’s 200 largest cities in America, and in it, they rank Sunnyvale the safest city in America. The survey’s authors specifically called out Sunnyvale’s low crime rate, our very low vehicular mortality rate, and our extremely low rate of drug use as factors in the ranking.
This is a testament to a lot of different factors. Our public safety officers operate the best safety department in the country. The Bay Area’s lifestyle is conducive to healthy living. And our residents take the time to look out for each other. Regardless of the reasons, yay us!
