Fatal Two-Vehicle Crash Statistics

All drivers must obey traffic laws and comply with traffic signs and signals. They also must be familiar with and obey right-of-way laws in whatever state they are operating a motor vehicle in. Many drivers fail to do so due to driving under the influence, distraction, speeding, or aggression. Their actions morph intersections into hazards and cause devastating accidents.

In California, car accidents are one of the leading causes of injury deaths. California had over 3,304 fatal car accidents in 2017, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Intersections are the most common part of the roadway for failure to yield accidents to happen. However, they can happen in many different locations, such as a driveway or pedestrian crosswalks. Distracted driving, drunk driving, and driver fatigue are all factors that contribute to these collisions.
