In 2015, more than 8 million registered vehicles traveled nearly 83 billion miles on Virginia roads. With that many vehicles travelling that distance, accidents are inevitable.
Still, there are ways for every driver to be safer. Many motor vehicle accidents in Virginia result from careless or negligent driving.
Speed was a factor in 43% of fatal crashes in Virginia, and alcohol was a factor in 32%. Not surprisingly, evening rush hour remains one of the most dangerous times to be on the road.
In 2015 the City of Richmond had nearly 5,200 car crashes but only 14 fatalities. Still, the majority of auto accidents—51%—involved injuries. That means most car crashes affect drivers’ lives in ways beyond simply repair work to their vehicle.
