Fatal Car Accidents in California
There are a number of factors that contribute to the high rate of fatal head-on collisions in California. The state's large population and extensive network of roads mean that there are more opportunities for accidents to occur. Additionally, many of the state's residents commute long distances on a daily basis, which increases the chances of an accident happening.
California also has a significant number of distracted drivers on the road. This is a major contributing factor to accidents. Taking your eyes off the road for even a few seconds can be dangerous, and unfortunately, many drivers do not realize how risky it is.
Speeding is another major factor in California's high number of fatal head-on collisions. Drivers who are speeding are more likely to lose control of their vehicle and drift into nearby lanes to cause an accident. Speeding also makes it more difficult for other drivers to see and react to dangers on the road in time, which can lead to serious or even deadly crashes.
