New Study Finds Arlington Entertainment District To Be The Most Dangerous Area To Drive In Tarrant
Patterson Law Group reveals findings from a new annual Tarrant County crash report.
Patterson Law Group mapped every accident in Tarrant County in 2018 (over 36,000 accidents in total) to understand why and where accidents occur.
The firm also analyzed intersections to determine which intersections are home to the highest number of accidents. At the top of the top 10 most dangerous intersections are Watson Road & Six Flags Drive (127 accidents in 2018) and Watson Road & Abram Street (81 accidents in 2018).
These Watson Road intersections sit just north and south of the Arlington Entertainment District. The district attracts travelers attending sporting events, theme parks and conferences. In 2018, the two intersections were home to a combined 124 injuries and one death.
Watson Road is certainly a cause for concern, but it wasn't the only road to make the list multiple times. I-35 and Cooper Street both had multiple appearances on the dreaded Top 10 list as well.

"The results of this crash report point to a pretty obvious rise in distracted driving—especially around the Entertainment District. This place is meant to be a hub for fun and enjoyment. You don't want that fun ruined because you or someone else failed to pay attention behind the wheel," remarked founding attorney, Travis Patterson. The firm takes a hard stance against distracted driving and urges all drivers to remain vigilant on the road.
Patterson Law Group hopes the annual study will help to improve road habits and road safety over time. It's important to remember that an accident can happen anywhere at any given moment and the map should serve as a reminder of that fact.
