The latest research data from the Governor's Office of Highway Safety, which covers the years 2010-2014, is a mixed bag: Traffic-related deaths in Clayton, Cobb, DeKalb and Fulton counties were all down, with only Gwinnett showing an increase in fatalities from 2013-14. But the number of crashes, fatal and non-fatal combined, increased in all five counties from 2011-14. So while you're less likely to die in a car accident, you still have a high chance of being in one.
Fulton led the group with 55,833 crashes in 2014. DeKalb was second with 38,627 wrecks. Gwinnett logged 36,094 crashes, followed by Cobb (26,921) and Clayton (12,397).
