Crashes on 64 Between Charlottesville & Crozet – More on Less in 2015?

That felt like a common theme in 2015, particularly in the second half of the year.

64 between Charlottesville (118) and Crozet (107)seemed to have had a lot more crashes in 2015 than in previous years.  Maybe this feeling came from more traffic or more awareness via facebook, twitter, and waze,  Either way, I wanted to find the answer to this question:

“have there been more crashes on 64 recently?” I’d like to see the last 5 years data between 118 and Crozet …

As of right now, it looks like 2015 had the fewest crashes in years.

Keep in mind that the 2015 data is preliminary; I’ll provide an update once they send me the final data.

I asked Albemarle County Police, then the State Police, then the County Police, then the DMV, then the State Police, then the DMV. Sigh.  And the DMV came through!

The * means “preliminary data.” I’m going to check back with the DMV in late February to see how/if the numbers have changed.

 

I think these are some of the better thoughts regarding wrecks on 64:

 


Make your own crash data maps at the DMV’s site. Pretty useful, actually.

  1. Would be interesting to see the numbers based on diff times of day b/c I would venture to guess that the number of morning accidents, particularly M-F, have increased drastically over the years!
