Elk Grove Auto Accidents and Traffic Volume

elk grove auto accidentsElk Grove is a rapidly-growing suburb of Sacramento, California.  As is common with suburban areas in California, it is primarily dependent upon automobiles for transportation of its citizens.

A tool used by many cities and counties for planning, designing, and maintaining safe transportation systems is traffic engineering, and where the primary mode of transport is the motor vehicle, traffic engineering is all about cars. In Elk Grove, the Traffic Engineering Section is part of the Department of Public Works. In other cities and counties, traffic engineering may similarly be carried out by a separate office or more generally by whatever public works department may have responsibility for the roadways.

One of the most important pieces of data that goes into traffic engineering is studying traffic volumes and accident statistics. The traffic volumes are both predicted for the purpose of planning and design new roadways, and measured on an ongoing basis in order to insure safe traffic flow and plan for corrections as needed.

But looking at traffic volume statistics can help identify future problem locations long before the accidents start to pile up, allowing the city time to install traffic signals or other traffic control devices, change the speed limits, add lanes if needed, or take other actions to forestall an increase in crashes.

Traffic volume statistics from August 2014 for major roadways in Elk Grove are listed below, and the City also provides a map showing traffic volumes. It’s interesting to note some of the patterns in these numbers, especially the fact that traffic flows are clearly not just back-and-forth. For example, in the first line of data — on Sheldon Road from the city limits to Bruceville Road, the average daily westbound traffic is more than 2.5 times as much as the average eastbound traffic. Clearly, people aren’t just driving from Point A to Point B and then back from Point B to Point A — traffic flows in more complicated patterns than this.
