Not quite sure where that data was cited from. Here is year by year crash data for North Carolina from the Department of Transportation. Rankings are available by county and by city. Wilmington is grouped on page 140 in the 2016 report with cities of 10,000 or more of which it was ranked #3,2,2 and 4 over the last 4 years respectively. Ranking is based on several factors per the document including crashes, crash severity and crash rates based on population.

It came from the NC Division of Motor Vehicles, specifically, page 103 of this report:

I'll remind you that the poster I responded to referenced "traffic deaths per 1,000 people". Per the linked report, in 2015, NHC had .09 "fatal crash injuries" per 1,000 people, ranking it 92 among NC's 100 counties.

Can we please let this thread die. It's obvious the OP was having a bad day. If you don't like something, do something about it. I'm sure the medians going on market st are a reaction to the crash data. Move or stay and talk to your local board to suggest improvements.

Angry hampstead family

Hello - After reading your post, I suddenly feel so deflated about the possibilty of moving to Hampstead. I have a friend who lives there, but has lived there for 10 years. Perhaps things were very different when she moved there. However, she still loves it, and raves about it. Linda :-(
