Bakersfield Speed Traps

Bakersfield Speed Traps Lawyers

Bakersfield, California, an area in Southern California rich in music history, museum exhibits, regional attractions… and unfortunately, speed traps.

Spread across Bakersfield and Kern County are a plethora of hidden areas where police officers are ready to flash intimidating lights out and steal your money.

The speed traps are usually in areas that have a high rate of Bakersfield car accidents. Monitoring areas know to have car accidents is fair. What is not fair, however, to to have our police officers wait in these areas and have them pounce on Bakersfield drivers.

Since Kern County motorists are aware of speed traps in the Bakersfield area, these drivers usually slow down and follow the speed limit 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), information on this website indicated that in one year, 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.

What Are the Basic Speed Laws

The basic speed law in California declares “that no person shall drive a vehicle upon a highway at a speed greater than is reasonable or prudent having due regard for weather, visibility, the traffic on, and the surface and width of, the highway, and in no event at a speed which endangers the safety of persons or property.

This law is enforced on all roads in California. Drivers who violate the California speed law have the possibility of paying a fine that can be up to $400 dollars.

Bisnar Chase Google Review - Lena

I wasn’t sure if I needed a personal injury attorney because I’d never been in a car accident before. I assumed I’d just go straight through the other driver’s insurance but that quickly became a nightmare. I spent months fighting over the simplest of issues about my case, which was 100% the other driver’s fault. I hired Bisnar Chase to see if they could just take it over for me. I was really impressed with how much they communicated everything to me! I suddenly started getting calls from the insurance company, imagine that. My final settlement was 6 times what I asked for to begin with. Everyone I dealt with was really involved in what was best for me, not the insurance.

Bisnar Chase Reviews

Bisnar Chase has been amazing with me through my lawsuit. I felt real compassion for my case and I was given their very best to make sure I was well taken care of. In addition to the great service given during my case, Bisnar Chase helped me get my son to his invited USA Football Team camp in Texas. They immediately offered to help fund the trip and are so supportive of his journey. I felt Kristi is just as excited for him as I am with this opportunity. Kristi has been an absolute delight to talk with. Bisnar Chase is more than I ever expected I could get in an attorney. I would recommend them to anyone!
