Lanes Blocked after San Rafael Auto Accident on 580 Freeway
SAN RAFAEL, CA (August 5, 2020) – Monday morning, a 2-car crash on the 580 Freeway in San Rafael stalled traffic.
The incident occurred at 7:50 a.m. on the westbound 580 Freeway on the Richmond–San Rafael Bridge.
Moreover, the crash initially closed the westbound right lane on the decline. Thus, resulting in traffic back up to Canal Boulevard. Even though authorities already cleared the scene, the incident still affected the traffic in the area.
Furthermore, the incident also caused delays on the Golden Gate Transit’s Bus Route 40 in both directions.
May this be a reminder to all drivers that operating a vehicle is a responsibility that should not be taken lightly. Moreover, it is important put all distractions away and be careful around other travelers. Always keep a safe distance from other vehicles around you. By being a defensive driver, you can minimize the risks of car accidents.
Dealing With the 2-Car Crash on 580 Freeway
As common of an occurrence as they are, many people do not suspect what follows in the event of a car crash.
When driving, scan the road 1/2 mile to a full mile ahead to check whether there’s a possible hazard. Our bodies weren’t designed to travel at 50mph. Also, we were designed for speeds of less than 10mph. Thus, you need to learn to consciously break that natural instinct and focus farther ahead
