Car accidents remain the number one cause of death of people 16 to 20 years old.

Renton is famous for its deadly S-curves on Interstate 405.  This common commuter route is known throughout the metro Seattle area as one of the most dangerous sections of roadway in tWashington state.  Not only does the curving highway cause long commutes but the high number of motor vehicle accidents contributes heavily to long drive times for I-405 commuters. 

During daily rush hour rear-end accidents are common.  Many business commuters are distracted by their mobile phones, attempt to read email messages, and try sending a text message while driving.  And distracted driving in these types of condistions is an accident waiting to happen.

On-ramps, off-ramps interchanges, and traffic moving in and out of high occupancy vehicle lanes at high speeds are another common source of accidents.
