California Pedestrian Collisions
Car wrecks in the Golden State take place hundreds of times per day. Recent statistics concerning annual car wrecks in California state that approximately 650 car crashes happen there per day. Approximately nine people lose their lives every day in California car wrecks, which adds up to about 3,200 per year. This is roughly 10% of the national fatal accident rate, which is currently at around 32,000 people who lose their lives per year.
Alarmingly, over 90% of the auto accidents that happen in the United States are the result of driver negligence. Driver negligence includes things like driving while intoxicated, distracted, fatigued, or driving at unsafe speeds. It is the leading cause of car wrecks across the nation and throughout California. This is most likely due to the increasing popularity of hand-held technology like smartphones.
Drivers and pedestrians alike need to pay attention to the roadway at all times while traveling. Doing so could save lives.
