According to Drive Safe Alabama, a motor vehicle accident was reported every 3 seconds and 55 seconds in 2020. Alabama motorists have a 2 in 5 chance of being involved in a serious wreck (involving injury or death) within their lifetime.
Dangerous collisions happen on interstates and city streets. While the majority of crashes in the state occurred in urban areas (75%), most accident-related fatalities happened in rural areas (62%). As noted by Drive Safe Alabama, the interstate system accounts for 1% of its total mileage but carries 25% of the traffic and is where 11% of traffic fatalities happen.
With a population in excess of 185,000, it is perhaps unsurprising that the city sees a large number of car accidents on its heavily trafficked streets. Some roadways see tens of thousands of vehicles travel on them each day.
