There’s some troubling statistics for Los Angeles residents and drivers.
According to the National Safety Council, Los Angeles ranked the highest in the nation for speed-related fatalities from 2010 through 2015.
In 2015 alone, over 35,000 people were killed across the United States in vehicle crashes.
Vision Zero Network has a map with an infographic showing these alarming statistics.
According to the Council, 9 out of 10 pedestrians survived being hit by a car traveling at 20mph. Only 1 out of 10 survived when the vehicle was driving at 40mph.
It’s frightening to think how a few miles per hour can mean the difference between life and death.
Please slow down! You might save a life!
