One person is killed or seriously injured in a car accident somewhere in the United States every minute. Every year, almost two million kids and young adults under the age of 34 die, and another ten times that number are injured.
By the year 2050, it is expected that over 10,000 people a year will be killed in road accidents in California.
The 2015 year-to-year increase in California’s car accident toll was 23.5 percent. In 2017, it was predicted that 3,898 people would be killed and 276,823 would be wounded due to car accidents. There were nine fatalities for every one hundred thousand people who used public transportation in 2018.
Even the most cautious drivers will certainly have an accident at some point. This is a helpful reminder of the significance of safe driving, regular car maintenance, and maintaining vigilance at all times.
