Where Do Most Auto Accidents Happen

The word on the street is that the most likely place to have an auto accident is close to home. It's not an urban legend. It's true. If you think about it, this makes a lot of sense. You've had a brutal day at work, then you head out on the freeway. Traffic is stop and go. Brake, gas, brake, gas. Finally you get off at your exit. Ten minutes and you'll be home. You relax after all that tension. Relaxing is one thing, but letting down your guard is another. Maybe you roll through the stop sign or make a right on a red light without really looking. Honk! beep! You're smack dab in the middle of an auto accident!

Or maybe you're one of those people who rarely travel more than twenty five miles from your home. The monotony of following the same route can put you on automatic pilot. Think about it. How many times have you found that you've arrived home and have not the faintest memory of the drive. What if a car had pulled out in front of you Would you have hit You were lucky this time,but not every one is.

Let's take a wider approach to answering the question. What states have the most accidents? According to statistics for 2010, in the Northeast, Pennsylvania took the lead, followed by Michigan, Ohio, Virginia, Texas, Wisconsin, Indiana, Illinois, and Minnesota. Dare we say it's heavily weighted toward the Midwest? Perhaps snow and deer played a big role.

On a serious note, despite the fender benders that occur on traffic-clogged city streets the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's (NHTSA) statistics for that same year show that 4,000 more fatal crashes took place on country roads than city streets.

Speaking of city streets, what cities report the most accidents. The top ten list : Alexandria, Virginia weighs in at number ten, followed by San Francisco in ninth place, then Washington DC; Jersey City; Hartford, Connecticut; Philadelphia; Providence, Rhode Island; Newark, New Jersey; Glendale, California; Baltimore comes in at number two and Washington DC takes first place.

Let's look at it from the opposite end. In what city do the least accidents occur? Fort Collins, Colorado. With a population of 138,000 the average driver gets into an auto accident once every fourteen years. For the rest of us, it's more like once every ten years.

And if we look at the big picture, 32,000 Americans are involved in accidents every year. What can you do to avoid being counted in this number? Be alert. It goes without saying, don't even think about phone calls or texts while you drive. Don't tailgate or drive aggressively. But if you do find yourself in an auto accident, whether you're close to home, or far away on vacation, you'll stand a better chance of walking away uninjured if you always make sure your seatbelt is fastened.
