Located in Pierce County, Washington, and the home to almost 200,000 people, Tacoma, Washington is a beautiful port city that boasts a rich history of international trade, Pacific Northwest culture, and proud generations of blue-collar workers. However, the city's location and density lends itself to a number of Washington bike accidents, Washington car accidents, and Washington pedestrian accidents.

Tacoma, Washington, is one of the most walkable cities in the nation.
