Vallejo Fatal Accident Data
Vallejo Fatal Accident Data – Residents of Vallejo know that 2018 has been one of the city’s worst years for traffic accidents. In fact, as of Monday, August 20, 2018, the city had already seen a 333 percent increase in fatal crashes from the previous year. In response to the bad streak of collisions, the Vallejo Police Department (VPD) has increased patrols at key locations within the city. Additionally, the city has added safer pedestrian crossing areas along Sonoma Boulevard, a street that has seen numerous accidents. However, residents should do everything they can to stay safe. One of the ways to reduce your risk of being involved in a crash is to know when and where they are likely to happen in your city.
