Traffic Accidents Sometimes Result in Injuries

Here are some of the practices that will help us prevent accidents:

  • Follow the posted speed limit.
  • Slow down your speed at intersections.
  • Give pedestrians the right of way at crosswalks and unmarked corners. Be ready to stop and let those on foot cross.
  • Apply extra care in less-than-ideal driving conditions. This may include dark, foggy, or rainy weather.
  • Respect all bicyclists. Give cyclists at least three to five feet of room when passing a bike. California law requires drivers to provide a minimum of three feet of space between a vehicle and a bicycle.
  • If there is not enough space to pass a bicyclist safely, be patient and wait until you can.

Commutes like taking your kids to school or going to work should be of no great consequence. Yet vehicle collision cases such as the single-car crash on Highway 1 continue to occur.

Traffic safety continues to be a life-and-death matter, yet reckless driving has not been in decline. Truth be told, one person is killed in a traffic accident every couple of hours.

Moreover, traffic safety continues to be a life-and-death matter, yet reckless driving has not been in decline.

Furthermore, sharing the road is a shared responsibility. It is important to keep an eye out for those who are on the road with you.


Your safety on the road is never guaranteed; however, knowledge is a powerful tool. Indeed, in uncertain times such as these, you may want to speak to a professional in case of an accident.

Knowing what steps to take following the single-car crash on Highway 1, can mean the difference between financial prosperity and financial disparity. The consequences of a serious accident can follow you for months, even years, if you don’t have your legal doubts cleared by an expert.
