Torrance Personal Injury Attorney
Torrance Is Famous for Traffic Collisions
The city of Torrance is not as well known as many of the Beach Cities in the South Bay, and as a result it is able to enjoy its status as a relatively quiet community with tens of thousands of trees planted along the streets and dozens of parks scattered across the city. This planned community has a history dating back more than a century, and now has one of the lowest crime rates in the county and one of the least-crowded beaches along the coast in the L.A. area. Torrance has, however, been the subject of some unwanted attention based on the fact that insurance company Allstate ranked it as having some of the worst drivers in the nation.
According to Allstate's 2012 "America's Best Driver's Report," Torrance has the 22nd highest rate of accidents in the nation. Car accidents and other types of traffic collisions occur in Torrance at a rate which is 36.7 percent higher than in the rest of the United States. Most drivers in Torrance can be expected to be involved in an accident once every 7.3 years, nearly twice as often as in the safest city, Sioux Falls, SD, where drivers can expect to pass 13.6 years before an accident. According to the most recent statistics available from the California Highway Patrol, 2010 saw 7 fatal traffic crashes and 484 injury collisions in Torrance. Two people were killed and 41 were injured by drunk drivers. There were 26 pedestrian accidents, 36 bicycle accidents and 32 motorcycle accidents.
