Glendale Accident Map

Accidents occur on a daily basis all around us. In fact, over 14,000 car accidents have occured in Glendale over the span of the last five years. While Glendale is by no means the most dangerous city for California drivers, it certainly is not the safest either. The Glendale accident map highlights where every accident has occurred within the past five years.

Goal Of The Accident Map

The accident map was built with the intention of alerting the public to just how dangerous driving on Glendale roads can be. The map is updated on an annual basis to ensure accident and road improvement trends are continually tracked and visually represented.

We hope that visualizing accident data will help everyone to understand which roads need additional attention and care. The first step to reducing accidents is being able to understand where they’re occurring and why.

Vigilance Is Key To Accident Prevention

In the past few years, Glendale has earned a number of state grants, which have fueled several city safety initiatives. Traffic safety has improved drastically in the past decade, but there is still a wealth of work to be done. Moreover, improving road infrastructure is only a portion of the safety equation. The most important thing drivers can do to prevent accidents is remain vigilant.

Driver inattention plays a role in 80% of all vehicle crashes in some way, shape, or form. Worse, 40% of California drivers admit to checking texts or emails while driving. All it takes is four seconds of inattention for an accident to occur. For the sake of your life and the lives of those you share the road with, it’s imperative you remain focused on the road at all times while behind the wheel.
