Car Accident Statistics
In 2020 alone, there were more than 42,000 car accidents within Los Angeles. At least 238 people died as a result of a car accident. The vast majority of these accidents were caused by drivers, not other factors. In 2020, there were fewer drivers on the road because of the pandemic. Yet, there was still a high number of accidents and fatal car crashes in the city. While there were fewer drivers, those who were driving were driving more dangerously, eliminating the benefits that would be expected with fewer cars on the road. Los Angeles is attempting to eliminate traffic deaths by 2025, but according to the numbers, the total deaths due to car accidents is still on par with prior years and isn’t reducing fast enough to reach that goal. Still, there are attempts to redesign streets to help reduce potential fatal accidents within the city.
