There seems to be a good correlation between city size and accidents. I don't know how the street grids enter into the equation. W-S and Durham have pretty confusing streets. Not knowing the traffic enforcement laws in these cities, I don't know if that positively or negatively affects their score. (Traffic cams are generally a lateral move when it comes to accidents).

I personally don't know how W-S got rated so highly. One accident every 10.3 years I think they said. Heck, I had 3 wrecks in 6 weeks in W-S!!! (none my fault!!)

Allstate are morons and their tv commericials make me want to cringe. I lose my temper driving in Winston more than any other place in NC. The worst roads are by far US 52, Business 40 and Silas Creek Parkway.

Whoever designed these roads should get an award for worst design. It's a miracle I haven't had an accident there, I drive to Winston almost everyday on my job, US 52 makes me want to pull my hair out.
