Frisco Accident Reports Online
- Texas DOT - Crash Reports and Records: There is no better place place than directly from the DOT for an official copy of your accident report. The Texas DOT is one of the (if not THE) most advanced State DOT’s in the United States. Where most other States in the US have no centralized data policy or standards for their accident reports, Texas has lead the way in centralizing and providing online access to its citizens.
History of Accidents in Frisco
By and large, the number of road accidents that occurred in Frisco over the past five years rose steadily, which is in line with the number of accidents occurring in other cities around the state of Texas. Not only that, but this also coincides with the vast majority of other states, as the US experienced a marked increase in accident volume starting in 2015 and peaking in 2016. However, while the rest of the US saw these accident figures begin to recede going into 2017 and continue to drop in 2018, Frisco largely bucked this trend by experiencing almost unfettered growth in the number of accidents on its streets.
Things begin in Frisco rather the same as in other locales across the country, as 2014’s accident figures were just 1,466 for the year. Then, thanks to economic conditions getting better across the US (which included the price of gas dropping significantly), a boom in the number of drivers on the road led to annual accident volumes jumping up. In this case, Frisco saw its accident numbers increase to 1,646. Like elsewhere, this volume rose again in 2016 in Frisco to 2,006.
For the rest of the country, 2017 and 2018 saw accident figures begin to ease off again, though they were still far above 2014 numbers at the end of the day. Frisco’s accident numbers in 2017 began to follow that trend with a slight drop-off to 1,999, but then the city’s accident volume shot up to a five-year high in 2018 to 2,104. This is certainly atypical when held up against the national average but also other cities and towns in Texas as well.

History of Fatalities in Frisco
Meanwhile, fatality rates in Frisco have stayed quite low for the most part, averaging between two to three deaths annually across the entire period. The only exception to this is 2017, when there were a distressingly high 10 fatalities in Frisco. This bears absolutely no resemblance to nationwide fatality numbers, as these mirrored accident volume in being lowest in 2014, peaking in 2016, and then declining across 2017 and 2018. Because 2017 was so out of place when compared to the other four years of McKinney’s fatality rates, this statistical anomaly could very well be just a fluke occurrence, especially when the rest of the period saw the region practically devoid of fatal accidents otherwise. If figures for 2019 rise once again, though, this may indicate a local problem with McKinney drivers, possibly the result of increases in distracted driving or driving while under the influence.
