Car Accidents in Los Angeles
Despite authorities in Los Angeles implementing policies such as “Vision Zero” to reduce the number of traffic collisions in the city, that number has been on the rise. Many Los Angeles residents or visitors are injured or killed every year in car accidents occurring in the city.
Unfortunately, most of the auto accidents are caused by avoidable human factors. Statistics show that unsafe speeding, impaired driving, and distracted driving are the leading causes of car accidents in Los Angeles and across the nation.
