Courtesy of the state DMV, this fancy map shows the impact of vehicle accidents in our beloved earth-toned community in 2010, the most recent year in which data was available. While there were only three fatalities (indicated by red triangles), there were certainly plenty of injuries (yellow circles) and property damage (green circles) in and around Reston. Aside from a slew of fender-benders on the commuter hellscapes of Rt. 7 and the Toll Road, the takeaway appears to be to stay off of Reston Parkway, Wiehle Avenue, and, especially, Elden Street once you cross under the Great Wall of Reston and head out towards Herndon way. North Reston appears to have fewer accidents (though we're sure the ones that did happen there involved much nicer, more sought after cars than elsewhere in Reston). Oddly enough, the pre-dieted Soapstone Road and the post-dieted Personal Injury Lawyers Road both stand out as not being particularly accident prone, at least on this fancy map, the end.
(Shout out to our favorite correspondent, The Peasant From Less Sought After South Reston, for this find.)
Update: Just hours after this "web log" was posted, we found this picture of a trash truck driving on the wrong side of a Reston street on the Twitter machines. Proof's in the pudding, etc., etc.
