Austin Accident Statistics

In ‘my business’ as an Austin personal injury attorney often nothing speaks louder than statistics – a form of cold, hard facts. When it comes to the safety of driving in Austin, Texas, there are several sources of data that – when presented – clarify the need for drivers to motor with greater caution.

According to data compiled in a recent year by the municipality:

*Fatal accident count: 63

*Vehicles involved in fatal accidents: 99

*Fatal accidents caused by drunken drivers: 20

*Fatalities: 65

*Persons involved in fatal accidents: 150

*Pedestrians involved in fatal accidents: 17

A recent survey found that Austin is one of the fastest growing cities in Texas – but as these figures show – it appears to be coming at a cost in lost and injured lives. In more than one year the number of accidents, fatalities and injuries far outpaces that of the state. Moreover, a second highly reliable source had this to say about traffic accidents in Austin just this year:

*The number of traffic deaths in June had surpassed that of previous years. In June 2011 there had been a total of 20 fatalities. In June 2012 – there have been 32 traffic-related deaths.

*Highway enforcement officers say that this year’s high number of pedestrians deaths account for 50 percent of the fatalities – trending upward from 2011 when that figure was 40% and 25% in each of the respective two previous years.

Unfortunately, as the population of Austin increases – it is expected that the number of traffic accidents will keep pace with that growth.

In a future entry we will examine some of the most common Austin roadways and intersections for traffic accidents.
