Southern California Trucking Accidents
Several hazardous characteristics of Southern California contribute to the risk of truck accidents. It is a densely populated region of the state and indeed, of the United States. Large commercial vehicles including the following are often in close proximity to large quantities of fast-moving cars and motorcycles in Southern California:
- Tractor-trailers coming to and from Mexico, Arizona and Nevada
- Tour buses taking loads of tourists on wine tasting tours near Santa Barbara
- Trucks hauling loads of cargo to and from ports such as the Port of Long Beach, the Port of Los Angeles and the Port of Oakland
Congestion and unpredictability of traffic in these high-population areas mean difficulties for truck drivers as well as for drivers of automobiles and other types of vehicles. Large numbers of inexperienced drivers, uninsured drivers, undocumented alien drivers and unlicensed drivers on the road can make traffic conditions challenging in the Los Angeles and San Diego metro areas and beyond.
Hollywood, Disneyland and the famous Southern California beaches attract many tourists behind the wheel — often driving rental cars and unfamiliar with routes and local traffic conditions. Truck drivers dealing with the dangers of crowded roadways sometimes have trouble avoiding accidents in Southern California.
