Guess What City Is The Distracted Capital Of Our State

Any Guesses?  Survey says Edmonds. And next on the list?

Lynnwood, is second on the list.

The city of Edmonds has earned a distinction it may not want – the highest rate of distracted driving crashes in Washington state,

says a new study released Monday.

The study, by insurance comparison website QuoteWizard and based on figures from the state Department of Transportation,

“The frequency of distracted driving accidents (in Edmonds) is nearly double that of SeaTac,

the next city on the list, and almost triple that of neighboring Lynnwood,” says the report.
