Brea Lawyers

Brea car accident lawyers agree that car collisions are pretty much unavoidable in a city of over 40,000. A busy retail center with a large shopping mall and the recently revitalized downtown area, Brea in Orange County, California, set out to reduce car collisions within its borders.

Brea Fatal Car Accident Statistics Decline Sharply

According to reports gathered by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, from 2001 to 2003, eight fatal car accidents occurred in Brea. This averages out to 2.3 fatal car crashes per 10,000 people, which, while lower than the national average, was not acceptable to city officials.

Implementing stepped-up enforcement efforts, Brea significantly reduced its car accident fatality rate in 2006. That year, while 260 people were injured in Brea car crashes, there were no car crash fatalities. DUI crashes caused 30 injuries. A total of 17 bicyclists and 17 pedestrians were injured. And motorcycle collisions injured five. In 2007, one car accident resulted in one death. Brea car accident attorneys acknowledge that Brea achieved what many cities its size could not.

Kudos to Traffic Division for Keeping Brea Car Collisions in Check

Serving both Brea and the city of Yorba Linda, the Brea Police Department's Traffic Division is charged with maintaining the safe traffic flow for residents and commuters. Brea and Yorba Linda are accessed by two major freeways, the Orange (57) and the Riverside (91) and a major highway, Imperial (90), which contribute heavy daily commuter traffic. Situated in the foothills of north Orange County, these cities comprise a daily population of about 160,000. So controlling traffic is no small task.

Sobriety Checkpoints Help Reduce Brea Car Crashes

To reduce Brea's car crash rate, the city regularly sets up Sobriety and Driver's License Checkpoints at key accident-prone intersections and streets. These include checkpoints stretched along State College Blvd., Birch Street near the Brea Mall, Lambert Road near the 57 freeway, and Imperial Highway (90) between Kraemer Blvd. and Harbor Blvd.

Sobriety checkpoints help take drunk drivers off city streets. In addition to issuing citations and making DUI arrests, sobriety checkpoints help educate the public on the dangers of driving while intoxicated. They also encourage the use of sober designated drivers. Virtually all Brea car collision lawyers will tell you that sobriety checkpoints can add to the safety of city streets and highways. The goal is to remove reckless and irresponsible drivers off Brea streets, to save lives and prevent needless injuries.
