La Mesa Car Accident Lawyers

Injured in a Traffic Accident? Contact the Jurewitz Law Group

Known as "the Jewel of the Hills," La Mesa, California is a city located in East San Diego County with a population of close to 57,000 people. It's accessible by Interstate 8 (also known as the Mission Valley Freeway) and California State Route 125. Major thoroughfares that cut through the city include El Cajon Boulevard and Fletcher Parkway. Traffic in the city is relatively light and bicycle lanes are aplenty. Based on the conditions, it would appear as if auto accidents should hardly be a problem in La Mesa. However, the opposite may be becoming true, according to recent statistical trends.

La Mesa Auto Accident Statistics

La Mesa experienced a spike in fatal accident rates in 2011. There were a total of five fatal accidents in which 19 people and 10 vehicles were involved. Six people were killed in these tragic incidents; two of them were pedestrians. Two of the fatal accidents involved drunken drivers. On a pure per basis, La Mesa's fatal accident rates in multiple categories were more than twice the state's average, sometimes even tripling the averages put up by California.

Between 2009 and 2010, there were significant increases in multiple La Mesa crash categories. The number of pedestrian accidents jumped from nine to 21. As for bicycle crash victims, the stat more than doubled from six to 13. Additionally, speed-related collisions experienced a huge jump from 19 to 53.

If the above information wasn't alarming enough, recent data from law enforcement indicates that the number of drunken drivers out on the road has also experienced huge spikes. In 2009, a total of 64 drunk driving arrests were made whereas, in 2010, a total of 240 drunk driving arrests were reported. The reason for this extreme rise may be that local law enforcement has enacted more aggressive policies against drunk driving. Even if this is the case, it does not discount the fact that a significant number of motorists in the city are driving drunk at a distressing rate.
