Drop The "A" Word - Not all crashes are accidents

State DOT's that get it right

Yesterday we posted a list of state DOT's that incorrectly use the word "accident" in their road reports.  Below is a list of DOT's that get it right.  They use crash or collision, or in some cases incident. The good news is that 28 states avoid referencing highway incidents as "accidents".  

Let's give credit where credit is due.  Thanks to these DOT's for getting it right.
