The top Columbus suburbs were recently ranked for “livability” based on safety , housing and education by the Columbus Monthly of the Columbus Dispatch. Source New Albany was ranked number 1, followed by Dublin and Upper Arlington, as the top 3.
I wondered what the traffic crash statistics showed for these top ten suburbs of Columbus. And if there was any relationship to the priority Columbus Monthly gave .
So here are some traffic crash statistics concentrating on Fatal Traffic Crashes in the top 10 rated suburbs.
New Albany 1
Upper Arlington 1
Reynoldsburg no data found
Groveport no data found
Canal Winchester 1
Powel no data found
In all of Columbus there were 54 fatalies caused by traffic accidents. In 2010 there were 50 deaths caused by motor vehicle accidents.

Conclusion on Columbus Traffic Accidents
It is apparent that the top 10 Columbus suburbs do not experience a large number of fatal crashes in any way out of proportion to other areas of Columbus. You can see that Mentor not in the top 10 had 3 fatalities as compared to 1 for each of the other suburbs.
