Tacoma Traffic != Dangerous

Making the WSDOT Proud

I ran across this clever web app that maps out the most dangerous roads and highways (calculated by the number of fatal accidents within a 1000 foot range). Naturally, I zoomed in to see where Tacoma stands relative to its neighbors, and was pleasantly surprised to see we are actually doing pretty well.

That's speaking in relative terms of course, as we do have a couple of fatal accidents on our slice of the state, but compared to other populous areas nearby, we're looking pretty good:

I'm just a computer geek that has fallen in love with Tacoma.

So, what's almost as fun as sitting in front of a computer all day? Talking about the growth and development of a new Tacoma, duh!
