Dickinson Police Department Releases 2013 Accident Report

Posted: Updated:

The ice on the roads has melted a lot, but one winter month stands out as the most accident-prone.

The Dickinson Police Department releases their annual review for 2013, and it's no surprise that the highest number of accidents occurred in December.

There were 194 accidents recorded in December, compared to the lowest number, 71 in February.

Police say they typically do see the most accidents in December, although it depends a lot on the weather.

"Of course people aren't climatized to driving in those conditions and when you get to that time of year that's when most of the snow and ice starts building up on the roads and people start driving and they're not used to driving in those conditions..." says Capt. Joe Cianni, Dickinson Police Department.

They report 15-hundred accidents overall for 2013, 52 accidents were injury accidents.

The good news is there were no fatal accidents reported in Dickinson last year.
