Introduction:

Our project focuses on the correlation between the weather and the driving conditions in Seattle, Washington and in Daytona Beach, Florida. The years of our research for both of the cities that we chose is from 1995 to 2010. During our research, we really wanted to focus and emphasize our research and data on the precipitiation for both of these cities and the accidents that occured in both of these cities between the following years above.

Methods:

Through StatCrunch, we were able to find the mean for each of the years above from 1995 to 2010. We created two statistical bar charts that compared our findings for both the mean temperatures and the mean precipitation for Seattle, Washington and Daytona Beach, Florida from 1995 to 2010. Along with our findings through StatCrunch where we found the mean between our data for each year and comparing our results between the two cities we researched the number of accidents and the causes of these accidents in Seattle, Washington and the annual number of accidents for the years 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010.

Results:

Mean Precipitation (inches) (snow/rain) in Daytona Beach and Seattle Washington

(The pie chart is under Thumbnail)

 The following chart shows the mean precipitation of snow and rain in inches in Daytona Beach and Seattle Washington from the year 1995 to 2010.

The information below are the accidents that occured in Seattle, Washington in 1996, 2008 and in 2010.

Seattle

o   1996 a storm combined with a foot of snow and rain caused major slush and flooded roads.

o   2008 snow fall caused a tour bus to slide down a hill and when through a railing and was hanging over a freeway.

o   2010 six inches of snow caused an immediate stop of traffic, taking hours for people to get to where they were going.

 

The following information below is the annual number of car accidents that vary from year to year.


Though the numbers vary from year to year, too many families are left with the pain of dealing with the loss of a loved one due to an auto accident. The NHTSA reports that:

  • In 2010, automobile-related accidents claimed the lives 32,885 people.
  • In 2009, crashes claimed the lives of 30,797 people.
  • In 2008, that number was 37,172.
  • In 2007, that number was 37,435.
