Bakersfield Speed Traps

Bakersfield, California, a beautiful area in Southern California known for music history, museum exhibits, regional attractions -- and speed traps. Spread across this beautiful land are hidden areas where police officers are ready to pop out and steal your money. To be perfectly fair, speed traps are usually in areas that have a high rate of Bakersfield car accidents. Since motorists catch on that there are speed traps in these areas, they usually slow down when they drive by. Whether it works or not is debatable, but the number of Bakersfield car crash injuries and deaths isn't exactly a promotion.

To get an accurate picture of Bakersfield's road record, statistics from the California Highway Patrol's Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System (SWITRS) revealed that in 2006, 24 people died and 1,126 were injured in a Bakersfield car accident. Pedestrians were safer, but still above average with 4 dying and 94 people being injured. If you come across the following areas while driving through Bakersfield, reduce your speed -- there is no good excuse for a life lost.
