Guess which city is the most car accident-prone

This won't come as a suprise to those of us who live around here, but DC is the most accident-prone city in the United States. Alexandria also makes a suprise appearance at the #10 spot too. Shocker.

Re: Guess which city is the most car accident-prone

We have some of the nastiest traffic in the region, this only makes sense. I will often see traffic get up to 40ish MPH, then all of a sudden, back to a dead stop. Very strange.

Yep, true true. In between the accidents and congestion the DMV is not a fun place to commute.

Re: Guess which city is the most car accident-prone

I think it's also the way people drive in DC. I mean I know it's confusing at times with all the circles and one way streets. But, in my opinion when you're driving you have to be two things-alert and confident. I feel like too often in the DC area people drive with a certain level of timidness that leads to more accidents.

And the Springfield Mixing Bowl is the devil's highway

Been awhile since you've been through there? It's pretty smooth now. Millions upon millions of dollars later and years of frustration they finally finished redoing it it and it works far better nowadays.

FPRLG and the ss - Yeah springfield mixing bowl is pretty smooth now.

Chico - Im orginally from the Annandale/Springfield area and as much as i sometimes like it up there, there is NO WAY i could live up there no matter what the job is unless i lived within 3 miles of work. Richmond has completely spoiled me

mooby - when people do those hashtags does it do anything? I see people do it on facebook. I get people do it on twitter and on blogs to categorize and tag posts but i see people do it other places now too. Are you tagging anything somehow or it just pop culture stuff?

Nah it doesn't do anything. I just do it on rare occasions where I want to put something like a sentence fragment but don't feel like spacing it out or making it a complete thought lol. It's become more popular with the rise of Twitter, the people that you see doing it on FB n such just do it as an extension of their Twitter profiles, because they're used to doing it on Twitter. On Twitter the # followed by w/e creates a hashtag, which is an easy way to do a search for something, and you know how everyone on Twitter has @ before their names. I'm sure part of the hashtags thing is so you can fit more words into the 140 character limit on Twitter, but we obviously don't have to deal with that here.
