Home to North Carolina State University and Duke University, the roads of Durham are filled with young drivers, who are responsible for approximately 1200 accidents a year. Also, with a combined 50,000 students attending the two universities, Durham is very susceptible to the move in days and athletic events hosted at each school, which make the street both congested and dangerous, with the more prevalent threat of drunk drivers.
With thousands of college students and major highways around Durham, it is no surprise that there are so many car accidents in the city. Durham is ranked 3rd in NC for having the largest amount of crashes, even though it is the 5th largest city in the state. Greensboro and Winston-Salem, the 3rd and 4th largest cities in NC, each report only 2.8 crashes/100 residents, while Durham reports a whopping 4.5 crashes/100 residents. In the United States as a whole, an average of around 6 million crashes occur each year, which is about 2 crashes/100 people, making Durham residents over 2 times as likely as those of the rest of the country to be in a car crash.
