Over the last few years in California, traffic fatalities have increased. From 2015 to 2016, there was a 7 percent jump in the number of accident-related deaths. The number of injuries was high as well, and California even classifies many injure as “serious” for statistical purposes. There were nearly 12,000 serious injuries in their latest reporting year.
These numbers are going up, and here in Downey, we are surrounded by places that see a good bit of traffic.
Driving at an unsafe speed is one of the main reasons people get injured in accidents. Drivers who are reckless and speed are the ones who put so many lives in danger. Other negligent driving behaviors that contribute to many injuries include improper lane changes and ignoring rights-of-way.
Impaired drivers continue to plague our roadways. All too often, drivers are getting behind the wheel after becoming intoxicated, turning their vehicles into weapons. These drivers should be held accountable, as should anyone who continued to serve them at a bar or restaurant.
While many places work hard to ensure that drivers are not distracted by their phones, there are many accidents caused because a driver was looking at some device in their lap. There is no safe way to drive and send text messages or watch a video. Distracted driving is just as dangerous as drunk driving.
Injuries caused by vehicle accidents can put people in major financial jeopardy. Even minor injuries can cause large medical bills. Major injuries could mean bills that run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars.
If you get hurt in a vehicle accident, you could end up out of work for a long time.
