Santa Maria Car Accident Lawyer

The largest city in Santa Barbara County, California with nearly 112,000 people, Santa Maria has a low car collision rate. Santa Maria car accident attorneys admit that the city's red-light camera and DUI enforcement efforts have helped hold down the number car collisions in the city.

Santa Maria car sccident attorneys will tell you that red-light cameras can help cut down on car accidents because they nab red-light scofflaws "red handed" on tape. They also convince would-be red-light violators to heed the law.

To reduce car accidents and injuries in the city, Santa Maria implemented a Red-Light Photo Enforcement program. It set up red-light cameras at major crash-likely intersections. Locations under their watchful eye include 4th Street and Mendocino Avenue, Betteravia and Miller, Mendocino Avenue and Administration Drive, Mendocino Avenue and Bicentennial Way, Miller and Stowell, Sonoma Highway and Farmers Lane, and South College Drive and East Battles Road.

Drunk drivers pose a major problem for many cities. Santa Maria was pro-active and joined Santa Barbara County's Avoid the 12 DUI enforcement program. One DUI checkpoint was set up on Broadway to identify drunk drivers and those without a valid driver's license and/or registration. Over 1,053 vehicles were screened and two DUI arrests were made. Seven unlicensed drivers had their vehicles impounded and two vehicles were towed because their owners were too drunk to drive. Santa Maria's Police Chief acknowledged that hit-and-run accidents have fallen as a result of the these checkpoints.

Police in many small but popular cities in California face difficulty in controlling through traffic. Santa Maria is a popular small city that many people flock to for stay-vacations and to enjoy the wineries and great outdoors. Many of the accidents that happen in Santa Maria are from non residents who are not familair with the city's streets.
