In 2018, more than 3,500 people were killed in fatal car accidents in California, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). In the years since 2018, the number of serious and fatal traffic accidents has continued to increase, even during the covid-19 pandemic. There are many reasons for accidents to happen in California, such as texting while driving, speeding, impaired driving, or simply failing to yield or stop at traffic lights and stop signs. Sometimes, poor road conditions and dim lighting on the roadways in the early mornings and late at night, and drivers not exercising extra caution during these times, causes accidents to happen. More than one-third of all road fatalities in the US are caused by reckless driving.
