Is the Tri-Cities a safe place to drive?

Is the Tri-Cities a safe place to drive? >>
The Tri-Cities (Kennewick, Pasco, & Richland, Washington) is one of the safest places to drive in the country. In fact, in a recent article by MSN Money, no city in Washington state was listed in the top ten most dangerous places to drive. Washington, D.C., however, topped that list. Next time you visit the capital, remember that you are twice as likely to get into a car accident in comparison to the national average.
According to 2009 Census information, Washington state is among the safest of states to drive in with less than one car-accident-related death per 100 million vehicle miles traveled. If you are a Washington resident, you will likely benefit from lower rates if you purchase insurance from a Washington-based insurance company.
Benton and Franklin counties are average for the state with approximately 1.5 collisions per million vehicle miles. Out of the Tri-Cities, Pasco is the safest city with only 11.84 collisions per 1,000 people. If you are truly concerned about vehicle safety but you don't want to leave the state, you may want to move to Twisp. Twisp had the lowest accident rate in the state of 1.09, or 1 collision last year for its 919 residents. Tukwila has the highest accident rate in the state of 73.01, or 1,395 collisions for its 19,107 residents (the highest number of collisions for any Washington city with a population under 60,000). No doubt they blame the I-5 and 405 for that.

shows how much he values America . but in riaelty it shows how much he values hatred and has no regard for life. This man shouldn't be voted into any office of any kind. The problem and the issues shouldn't be with the illegal immigrants it should be with our very own government who should protect our borders and enforce our laws. The immigrants are simply coming here in many cases to hopefully find a better way of life. I work in the healthcare industry and I can assure I see every day the impact illegal immigrants have on this country but lets not forget the same fraud, murder, rape, theft, etc are committed by our own American's as well, if not more. If you let your kid get away with someone for years and decided today it was wrong would you shoot him? Ask yourself that Mr. Nichols. Your statement about immigrants show the world that you are about as intelligent and wise as the hair on a horses ass. What an Idiot you should be arrested for hate crimes.
