Unfortunately, though, car accidents in Athens – like anywhere else
– can injure or even kill people. Because so many students and other
people come to Athens, it has an unusually high proportion of traffic
and highways. Additionally, the city has grown at an astronomical rate.
Athens grew by a whopping 15% between 2000 and 2010. In 2000, the census
found Athens’ population was 100,266. By the 2010 census, that number
had grown to 115,452. The decade before had even more astonishing growth.
In 1990, Athens had a population of 45,734, but by the year 2000, the

various points as State Route 8, 10 and 15), and U.S. Highways 29, 78,
