We’re sure you do what you can to avoid getting in accidents when driving.

You follow traffic rules, pay attention to your surroundings, keep an extra eye out for pedestrians and cyclists, and, of course, you definitely don’t text and drive. You do those things, right?

But despite our best efforts, accidents do happen – to everyone. So, what else can we do to try to avoid accidents? We can avoid those places where traffic accidents take place most frequently. Or, at least, be especially careful when we need to drive through those locations.

Some places have more accidents simply because they have more traffic. In other spots, it is because of some limited visibility, or common poor road conditions in that area, or a general lack of attention by drivers on those streets.

Austin isn’t in the Top 25 most dangerous cities for drivers in the United States, at least as recently as October 2019, according to insurance companies. Dallas, Mesquite, Fort Worth and Houston all made that notorious list. However, with the bustling population increases and constant highway construction in the Austin metro area, accidents are bound to happen.
