The number of accidents in Harlingen rose suddenly from 2,291 in 2014 to 2,640 in 2015. This 15.23 percent rise in the number of reported accidents is the greatest one within the 5-year period from 2014 to 2018. In 2016, the number of accidents went up by 1 percent again to 2,666.
However, in 2017, there was a relatively sharp decline in the number of accidents to 2,448. This decrease of 8.18 percent was followed by an increase of 6.05 percent in accidents, which resulted in 2,596 road crashes in 2018. From 2014 to 2018, the least number of reportable crashes occurred in 2014, while the highest occurred in 2016. An average of 2,528.2 annual crashes took place during this period.
The trend in the number of crashes in Harlingen is similar to the trend in the total number of reportable crashes in Texas based on statistics from Texas DOT. Crashes increased significantly from 2014 to 2015 and continued to rise at a lower rate in 2016. There are different reasons for this increase in the number of accidents. As the price of gas dropped, more residents of Harlingen found it easier to buy more gas for their vehicles. This led to an increase in the volume of traffic on the roads. Consequently, there were more crashes.
Another major reason for the increase in crashes is the rise in the use of smartphones. These devices have had a negative effect on drivers' concentration. With 76 percent of households owning a smartphone and the rapid rise in the use of these devices to send texts and browse the Internet, many drivers are now driving with divided attention
The number of fatal crashes per year has been relatively high in Harlingen. It rose by 100 percent from 5 in 2014 to 10 in 2015. In 2016, the fatal crashes dropped by 30 percent to 7. The number rose to 8 in 2017 and then fell again to 4 in 2018.
Over the 5-year period from 2014 to 2018, the least number of fatalities occurred in 2018. The highest number occurred in 2015. The greatest percentage increase in fatalities occurred between 2014 and 2015, while the greatest reduction occurred between 2017 and 2018. An average of 6.8 fatalities occurred each year from 2014 to 2018.
The trend in the history of fatalities only matches the number of reported crashes between 2014 and 2015. During this period, as accidents increased from 2,291 to 2,640, the number of fatalities rose from 5 to 10. In 2016, however, the fatalities reduced as the crashes increased. And, in 2017, as crashes reduced, the fatalities rose. Also, a rise in the number of crashes was accompanied by a drop in the number of fatalities.
This shows that fatalities in Harlingen are not directly related to the number of accidents that take place in a particular year. It also shows that the improvement in safety designs and equipment in cars has helped to reduce the number of fatalities.
