Auto Accidents in California
Each year, hundreds of thousands of people are injured as a result of automobile accidents in California. Far too often, these accidents are entirely preventable. Reckless and negligent drivers continue to cause harm to innocent people traveling on our roadways. Bicyclists, in particular, are more likely to suffer severe injuries as a result of collisions. Unfortunately, these accidents often take place as a result of drivers who are. Leading factors in bicycle accidents include:
- Disobeying Traffic Signals: When drivers disregard red lights or fail to stop at stop signs at intersections, they create situations in which they may collide with other vehicles that have the right-of-way to proceed.
- Failure to Yield: When drivers neglect to yield to other vehicles at intersections or while switching lanes on the road, they increase the potential for collisions and, consequently, the risk of causing substantial harm to other drivers and cyclists in the area.
- Excessive Speeding: When drivers travel through intersections at excessive speeds, they may not be able to stop in time to avoid colliding with other vehicles, especially if traffic signals change suddenly or if they fail to notice a stop sign as they approach. Speeding can also increase the risk of drivers swerving into other lanes and striking nearby travelers.
