What’s Being Done to Prevent California Car Accidents?

by Staff Blogger | October 12th, 2015

Many Factors can play a part in causing a car accident, but two of the most common are drunk driving and distracted driving. Our California car accident attorneys at Berg Injury Lawyers point out that inexperienced teen drivers are most likely to be involved in motor vehicle collisions as well.

The California Highway Patrol (CHP) is working to address each of these contributing factors with safety campaigns. According to KHTS 1220 AM radio, the CHP is beginning to hold “Start Smart” driving classes to help reduce teen driving accidents. The course offers teens and their parents instruction on the latest traffic laws as well as techniques and tips that can be used to avoid accidents. The course is offered on a monthly basis, and the next session will take place on Oct. 17, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Newhall Library on Main Street in Santa Clarita.

The CHP is taking a different approach toward preventing drunk and distracted driving accidents. The agency has scheduled several upcoming enforcement campaigns aimed at targeting motorists engaging in either behavior. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration provided funding for the newly announced initiatives.

The legal staff at Berg Injury Lawyers recognizes the risks drivers face on the road each day, and our California personal injury attorneys are hopeful each of these initiatives is successful in making our roads a safer place to drive.
