Teen drivers pose hazards to California motorists

Statistics have continued to confirm the popular perception that even generally honest and well-behaved teenagers are more prone to having accidents when they get behind the wheel. Nationwide, car accidents continue to be the number one killer of people ages 16 to 19. Perhaps more disturbingly, teen drivers account for almost 8.5% of all costs and expenses connected with bodily injuries from car accidents. This is problematic since people ages 15 to 19 make up only 6.5% of the overall population, meaning that this segment is contributing to a disproportionate share of injury costs.

Study shows public not sensitive to the dangers of driving high

A recent study by a group affiliated with the American Automobile Association, or AAA, concludes that the general public may not be as sensitive to the dangers of driving while high on marijuana as it is to the dangers of drunk driving or even other forms of drugged driving.

Statistics on fatal accidents in California

Not surprisingly, California has a relatively high number of traffic-related fatalities when compared with its sister states. The reason this is not surprising is that California has the largest population among all the states in the union. With that large population comes a lot of motor vehicles on the road, and with that, a higher possibility of car accidents with either a fatality or with catastrophic injuries.

Unofficial High Holiday can end in tragedy on the road

For over a generation now, those who support the more liberal use of marijuana in California and the rest of the country have observed April 20 as a so-called High Holiday. One custom of this countercultural observance is to ingest marijuana at around 4:20 p.m. on this day.

Just because drivers can go faster doesn't mean they should

Like other states, California has in the past several decades increased its speed limits. Whereas it used to be that the fastest any motorist could travel even on the interstate was 55 miles per hour, nowadays, Californians may be allowed to drive at 65 or even 70 miles per hour without exceeding the speed limit.

We assist those affected by negligent drivers

It is true that many traffic accidents in California and across the country are caused by drunk, drugged or clearly reckless drivers who care little for the rights of other people on the road. However, it does not take a malicious or poorly behaved motorist to cause an accident. All it really takes is a little inattentiveness or thoughtlessness.

High speed may be a factor in fatal car accident

Though it is one of the most common behaviors that people across the country engage in on a daily basis, driving is also incredibly dangerous. While many people go out and about and spend their lives without ever becoming involved in a car accident, thousands of others become injured or lose their lives in crashes on a daily basis. Their lives have become irrevocably altered by the actions of a single, often irresponsible, driver.

Cellphone use still common on California roadways

Though it has been illegal to use a hand-held phone in California for the last 10 years, the percentage of drivers using their phones while driving increased in 2018. According to people present at intersections around California, at any one moment, 4.5 percent of drivers were using their cellphones in 2018. This demonstrated an increase from 3.6 percent last year.
