Dangerous Oroville Speeding Violations

Dangerous Oroville Speeding Violations

Dangerous Oroville Speeding Violations – There are many ways that reckless drivers can cause a crash and car accidents often come with serious, and even fatal, consequences. The California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) reports that the state sees around one traffic accident for every 100 million miles traveled by all vehicles, a number that has steadily risen in past years. While dangerous driving behaviors are various and include things like using cell phones, operating a vehicle under the influence, and violating traffic signals, speeding is almost universally the leading cause of traumatic collisions across Northern California cities.

Whether it is bumper scratches or a serious multi-car accident, every car accident carries with it the opportunity of sustaining multiple injuries.
