Northern California Truck Accidents
Considering California's large size — both in terms of land and population — and regional differences, it has often been suggested that the state could easily be divided into three states. Each would still be larger than many other states in the U.S. Northern California, for example, is marked by features and characteristics, including:
- Its border with Oregon. (Together with Oregon and Washington, some concepts of the definition of the Pacific Northwest include portions of Northern California as well as portions of British Columbia.)
- The Redwood National Park.
- The Port of Humboldt Bay and the Port of Richmond.
- Its hilly and mountainous areas.
- Its long stretches of highway between major urban areas.
Common Causes Of Truck Accidents In Northern California
When trucking accidents occur in Northern California, they sometimes have to do with:
- Logging industry transport
- Traffic in the Redding area
- Sleepiness in drivers traveling on long stretches of highway — often including long portions of, or the entire length of, Interstate 5 (I-5) and sometimes including transport of cargo to and from Seattle, Canada, Central or Southern California and/or Mexico
- A tendency to speed, particularly when coming down a grade on a hill
- Slowness while traveling uphill
Inclement weather and atmospheric conditions may include rain, snow, fog and smoke during times of forest fires.
