Whether you are driving in Encinitas or elsewhere in Southern California, it is important to be aware of common motor vehicle collision risks and to take steps to reduce the likelihood of being involved in a crash. For example, it is important to avoid any form of distracted driving, intoxicated driving, fatigued driving, and aggressive driving. But are there other facts that affect your car accident risk over which you have less control? According to a recent report from KTLA 5, male drivers are known to be at a higher risk of being killed in a car accident anywhere in the US, and they are at particular risk in California. Indeed, as that report explains, “California is listed among the top 10 deadliest states for male crash victims.” 

What should you know about gender and car accident risk? And what should you do if you are injured in a motor vehicle collision in Encinitas or nearby? An experienced Encinitas car accident lawyer at our firm can tell you more.

Understanding Gender and Car Crash Risk

Whether you are driving in Encinitas or anywhere else in San Diego County or across Southern California, you are likely to observe or encounter some type of risky driving behavior. From motorists who speed by you to those you observe texting while driving despite traveling at a relatively high speed behind the wheel, dangerous driving behaviors are, unfortunately, a norm. In fact, according to a recent report from the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, more than 50% of all drivers engage in at least one type of risky behavior on a regular basis while driving. That report classifies motorists by the type of dangerous behavior that they routinely engage in, and it provides information about the percentage of each kind of driver on the road. 

Our Encinitas car accident lawyers can tell you more about the report, and we can help you if you are injured in a crash and need to file a claim.
