For all of its allure; Austin is struggling with an increase in vehicle collision fatalities this year. As of December 5th there have been 71 deaths caused by car and truck accidents. This figure represents a 70% increase in traffic fatalities from only a year before – and should have officials scrambling to discern the cause of this abomination – as well as finding immediate solutions.

There are a lot of reasons for Austin to be proud. Among other things it is the thirteenth most populous city in the United States and the fourth most populous city in the state of Texas. According to the U.S. Census results from 2011 it was also the third-fastest-growing large city in the nation from 2000 to 2006 and currently boasts a population of over 820,000. Perhaps it is the fact that Austin is not too big, not too small; but just right – that makes it a destination for people from all over the country.

But tourists (and even residents for that matter) may think twice about a layover in Austin if this shocking increase in traffic fatalities is not addressed – aggressively and conclusively. And what about the last accident that pushed the number of traffic deaths to 71? It was a collision between a semi and an SUV. One young woman died and four others were injured.

Drive with caution – especially in Austin.
