Both 250 and 64 into Charlottesville look to be disasters. What the hell is going on?

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 …
Another day, another wreck on 64.

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.
