Southern California averages 4 traffic fatalities a day

Every day, an average of four people lose their lives in traffic accidents in Southern California.

Most people know that car accidents happen frequently in the United States. Turn on the news, and you can almost always find a story about a deadly crash. But statistics like this really help to put it in perspective. You really understand the risks you face when you know that four other people just like you are not going to make it home at the end of the day.

And that's just in one part of one state. Accidents take an incredible toll all over the country.

Some days are more dangerous than others. For instance, one report claimed that the average amount of traffic deaths in Southern California is about twice as high on New Year's Day. It jumps to around seven deadly crashes.

Why is it so high that day? Well, many people stay up until midnight to ring in the new year, so you have a higher amount of drivers on the road in the early morning than you normally would. Since a lot of these people were partying, you also have a lot of drivers who have been drinking and using drugs. That combination means that you see a high number of crashes that technically happen on New Year's Day, but they really happened because of events on New Year's Eve.

You can't always avoid the risks that come with driving. Even if you do everything right, another driver can hit you, and then you need to know what legal options you have.
