No one wakes up in the morning expecting they will be injured by another vehicle while driving to work, dropping the kids off at school or otherwise. The reality that there were 490,168 car crashes in California in 2016 or that California accounts for 12% of the nation’s automobile deaths are not statistics which enter the common person’s mind on the drive to the market or on a family vacation.
According to the California Office of Traffic Safety, Los Angeles County has the most traffic collisions in the state with 91,468 persons killed or injured in 2016, more than Orange County (23,103), San Diego County (21,534), San Bernardino County (16,263), and Riverside County (15,551) combined. Despite governmental efforts, accident deaths have increased 28% since 2013 and speeding related deaths have increased 17.5% since 2011. When you add the rising numbers of drunk, drugged, and distracted drivers, driving in Southern California is more dangerous than it has ever been.
