Orange County Car Crashes

Over 200,000 individuals are injured yearly in California car accidents. A very large portion of these collisions takes place at local intersections. These are known for being some of the most problematic places on California’s roadways, and all roadways across the United States. It is estimated that approximately 2 million intersection collisions take place every single year, injuring thousands of people. This is approximately one-third of the national accident rate. Hundreds of lives are taken each and every year due to these collisions, and thousands more are injured. 

There are several reasons that California car accidents can take place, and sadly most of them are correctable yet negligent human behaviors. In the largest city in California, Los Angeles, the leading cause of auto accidents is distracted driving. According to a recent traffic report, distracted driving has reached epidemic proportions in the state of California. Usually, drivers are distracted by their cell phones. This is an illegal act in the Golden State. Utilizing a handheld smartphone while driving is punishable by law in California and most other states these days. This is a dangerous and selfish act that could easily put yours, your passengers, and anyone else’s lives you encounter on the road in immediate danger. It takes a split second for an accident to occur that could negatively affect you for weeks, months, or years to come.
