Traffic Report for Midland

They just released the 2004 traffic report for Midland. It shows that the most dangerous intersection now is the Mall exit (Midkiff @ Courtyard). I calculated it (said there are 1.5 accidents for every one million vehicles that enter that intersection) meaning you have a 1:666,667 chance of getting in an accident at that intersection. So you probably don't have to avoid that intersection on you're next time to work.

It gave even more shocking news (well it wasn't shocking because we already knew)
*increase 4 to 15 in fatalities
*increase alcohol/drug accidents 125 to 139

Total accidents did go down though from 15 to 2950 for the year (about 8 a day).

It seems that the good drivers are getting better and the bad drivers are getting worse!
