Fewer Cars On Los Angeles Roads Leads to More 100+ mph Tickets

Fewer Cars On Los Angeles Roads Leads to More 100+ mph Tickets

The stay at home orders due to the current COVID-19 pandemic have meant fewer drivers on Los Angeles roads and roads statewide. However, according to the Los Angeles Daily News, the number of drivers pulled over for driving at speeds higher than 100 mph has increased dramatically, by 87%, in the first month of the stay at home order.

California Highway Patrol issued 2,493 citations to drivers driving 100mph or more from March 19th to April 19th. During the same time last year, only 1,335 citations of this kind were given out. Officers believe this increase in fast driving is due to the roads being “deserted by California standards.”

COVID-19 Stay at Home Orders Significantly Reduces California Car Accidents

COVID-19 Stay at Home Orders Significantly Reduces California Car Accidents

With stay at home orders in place for the entire state of California due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, California residents are doing their best to remain in their houses and only leave when necessary. This has significantly reduced traffic throughout the state and particularly on the traditionally busy Southern California roads.

According to the Los Angeles Times, this decrease in driving has led to a decrease in vehicle collisions. A UC Davis survey was conducted to examine the impact of the stay at home orders on traffic. The survey showed that there were “about 15,000 fewer collisions per month and 6,000 fewer injury accidents.” The large decrease in traffic volume,  “accounts for a roughly 50% decline in collisions on roadways policed by California Highway Patrol.”

The Importance of Defensive Driving--Tips to Avoid Los Angeles Car Accidents

The Importance of Defensive Driving–Tips to Avoid Los Angeles Car Accidents

Los Angeles is known for its heavy traffic. With so many cars on the road, accidents are bound to happen. It is important to make sure that you do your part as a driver to help avoid accidents–you can do this by driving defensively.

What Should You Do After A Rideshare Accident?

Accidents happen everyday in Los Angeles but figuring out who is to blame when the crash involves a rideshare car or scooter can be confusing. Uber, Lyft, Lime and other companies make a killing off of getting people where they need to go and when a driver plays a role in causing an accident, they also need to pay.

What Should I Do After My Rideshare Accident?

What Is an Accident Reconstruction Expert?

What Is an Accident Reconstruction Expert?

An accident reconstruction expert is a professional with training and qualifications in recreating collisions. They use education, training, and experience to determine how the crash happened and who or what caused it. These experts have engineering, forensic engineering, law enforcement, and/or science backgrounds and use math and physics to learn what happened during an accident. They take the “human” error out of eyewitness accounts and use science to show why and how a crash took place. When you work with us as your local personal injury attorneys, we make sure we are presenting your strongest case possible and that often involves employing experts to show exactly what happened when you were injured. Simply put, we work with the best to create your strongest case and get you the most money following your accident.

Recreating an Accident

Myth: All personal injury lawyers try to steal cases from each other.

There is a new and disturbing trend that we are seeing in our industry, where California personal injury lawyers are seeking out clients who are already represented by other attorneys. While this is unfortunately happening more and more, it is important to remember that lawyers are held to a high ethical standard and poaching cases from other lawyers still is not the norm.

Unlike some of the attorneys you see on television commercials, radio advertisements, or billboards, our firm is not looking to try to take cases from other attorneys. In fact, when a potential client calls us and wants to switch attorneys to us, the first thing we will do is look to see if the current attorney-client relationship is sustainable, or if it has reached a point of no return. Attorney Robert Walch will frequently see what he can do to revive the existing relationship, rather than take another attorney’s case.
