Depending on where your accident occurred there are potentially $count Police Agencies that could have attended your accident and completed the report.
ALL of these agencies use the the Texas DOT CRIS (Crash Report Information System) and so obtaining a copy of your report from any of them is relatively easy.
Part of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex and nestled between Plano to the north and Garland to the south and east, the city of Richardson is home to around 116,000 residents. Richardson is best known for being the home of the University of Texas at Dallas, but it can also experience high levels of traffic, especially where State Route 75 crosses Interstate 635.
As always, with high traffic comes accidents, though for a city of its size Richardson isn't necessarily out of line when it comes to the average number of accidents it experiences. In fact, even at its busiest point over the past five years, the city only had 2,440 recorded accidents. This compares favorably to many other cities of similar populations throughout Texas.
Richardson has also trended well within national patterns when it comes to accident volumes from 2014 through 2018. Where US averages began low in 2014, rose through 2016, and then began to decline slightly through 2018, so did Richardson's accident rates. The city experienced just 1,962 accidents in 2014 before watching rates rise to 2,233 in 2015 and then to that 2,440 high point in 2016 before dropping back down to 2,272 in 2017 and 2,186 the following year. While the exact ratios may be off when it comes to matching Richardson against the national average, the general trends more than match, indicating that the same conditions that influenced the majority of the US also likely played a role in this Texas city.
When it comes to understanding these conditions, researchers have not been shy in pointing the finger at possible causes. The most likely culprit is, ironically enough, economic conditions becoming better across the United States beginning in 2015. Unemployment hit new lows that year, which meant the majority of Americans were back at work and earning a living at this time. Combined with some of the cheapest gas prices in nearly a decade, the cost of keeping a car became more affordable at the same time. This combination of most people in the US having more money on hand and it being less financially burdensome to own a car led to many more people on the road. The side effect, unfortunately, is thought to be higher accident volumes.
All in all, Richardson's accident rates and yearly fatalities are more or less in line with national averages, making them likely to be controlled by the same conditions. This has been true in the past, and will likely remain that way in the future.
