Hesperia Car Accident Trends
In the past 5 years, Hesperia has had an average of 950 car accidents a year, with about 40% of those resulting in injuries. This concerning statistic has been slowly rising and has culminated in 469 injuries and 17 deaths in 2014, compared with 375 injuries and 10 deaths in 2009. Truck accidents show the most change since 2009, dipping down to 40 in 2011 but rising again to 67 – its highest point in the time period.
Many of these accidents are also caused by drunk drivers, with the majority unsurprisingly taking place from 7-10pm. These drunk driving accidents make up more than 10% of all car accidents in Hesperia, reaching a high of 125 incidents in 2013, but this 10% of all car accidents accounted for nearly half of all car accident fatalities in the past 5 years. This is a tragic reminder of the danger of driving drunk. It not only leads to accidents, but to much more dangerous accidents. The statistics show that when you’re in Hesperia, you’re 7 times more likely to be killed in a car accident when alcohol is involved.
