New England vs. Philadelphia: Winners on the road


Just in time for the Big Game this Sunday, Verizon Telematics has pitted Philadelphia and New England against each other in more ways than one. Our infographic compares these two cities side by side to determine who takes the lead on the road and on the field.

Based on data from more than 6,000 vehicles using the Reveal platform in the two cities, Verizon Telematics gathered key insights about Boston and Philadelphia driving habits. A few top takeaways are:

  • Boston has 24.6% more safe drivers than Philadelphia: Make sure to stay alert in Philadelphia! Unsafe driving can lead to dangerous consequences, just like lack of focus can cause the other team to intercept the ball on a pass.
  • Philadelphia drivers speed 29% more than Boston drivers on the road: While speeding is not recommended on the road, it is important to be fast on the football field. Looks like Philadelphia takes the lead on the field but needs to slow down on the road!
  • Boston hard brakes 25% less than Philadelphia: A QB sack is equivalent to hard braking on the road. Philadelphia needs to work harder on and off the field in this category.
  • Philadelphia drove 8% more miles than Boston in the last two years: On the field, New England defense is considered the underdog in stops against Philadelphia, and on the road, less stops means more jobs completed by Philadelphia.
