A geographic area where we practice quite often is the City of Newport News, Virginia (VA). Newport News is the fifth-most populous city in the entire Commonwealt of Virginia. It's considered a "military city" since many residents are employed at the joint U.S. Air Force-U.S. Army installation at Joint Base Langley–Eustis, and other military bases and suppliers. It's also populated by many young residents who attend Christopher Newport University, Hampton University, or people who commute to surrounding universities such as The College of William and Mary, Old Dominion University, and Norfolk State University. This means Newport News roads and highways are routinely occupied by both residents and people of town who may only be visiting a military base or college compus for a brief time. Given the large population in and around the city, the risk of serious auto accidents is rather high.
