Valdosta - Despite an increase in population, the number of traffic crashes in Valdosta is going down.

City engineers say accidents reached an all time high in 1997, with nearly 2500.

In 2007, the accident count was just above 1900.

That's 8% lower than last year.  And it's barely half the number experts expect in a city the size of Valdosta.

Engineers credit extra safety precautions.  "We are trying to do all we can here in the city to make our signage legible, our pavement markings are legible, our traffic control systems are working. We continuously check traffic counts and volumes so we can adjust traffic lights so that we can keep traffic moving as safely as possible," says Von Shipman, City Engineer.

They'll keep up the hard work as the city grows and they hope the numbers will continue to fall.
