Encinitas Car Accidents
Encinitas Car Accident Lawyer Speaks About Active Lifestyle Motor Vehicle Accidents Involving Bicyclists and Pedestrians
Encinitas is a coastal city in San Diego County, California. With a population of over 58,014 people and a total area of 20.1 square miles (52.1 square kilometers), Encinitas was incorporated in 1986 and is divided into 5 districts: Old Encinitas, New Encinitas, Olivenhain, Leucadia, and Cardiff-by-the-Sea. Cardiff-by-the-Sea is Encinitas’ southernmost oceanfront community with several attractive features such as streets named after classical composers, the Lux Art Institute, and the San Elijo Campus of Mira Costa College. Encinitas is also a great place to attend all kinds of events such as the Annual Fall Festival, the Poinsettia Festival, and the Wavecrest Woodie Meet.
Interstate 5, or the San Diego Freeway, is the major freeway to get to Encinitas. Other highways and streets include North Coast Highway 101, South Coast Highway 101, Vulcan Avenue, Encinitas Boulevard, and El Camino Real. Those on cars and motorcycles can travel to and through the city using these main roads.
Unfortunately, Encinitas isn’t exempted from auto accidents and injuries due to reckless driving and collisions. The 2008 Statewide Integrated Transit Report System (SWITRS) Report, Encinitas saw a total of 241 injury auto accidents in 2008. Four were fatal traffic accident and 30 involved drunk driving. Seventeen pedestrian injury accidents happened in 2008, while Encinitas also experienced 20 bicycle crashes and 25 motorcycle wrecks.
“Encinitas is a wonderful beachside community and one of the jewels of San Diego County,” according to Encinitas car accident lawyer Ross Jurewitz. “It is a great outdoor community with plenty of pedestrian traffic, weekend motorcyclists, and bicycle riders training for their next race. All these people share the road with motorists and, unfortunately, cars will occasionally cause injury accidents.”
