The Top 7 Most Collision-Prone Areas in Sacramento


The Christmas season is one of joy and celebration, but it's worth remembering that this time of year also demands extra caution when we're out on the road. Not only drunk under the influence poses a danger to motorists during the holiday season; let's also factor in stress, distraction and fatigue, all of which can make your commute or just a simple trip less safe.

Recently the Sacramento Police Department has been collecting and analyzing traffic data to pinpoint the most collision-prone areas around town. Accidents are often due to careless behavior like speeding and running red lights, so the police have intensified their coverage of target neighborhoods in an effort to get drivers to slow down. Traffic teams saturate a given zone, increasing their visibility and hopefully lessening the chances of another car crash.

Here's the Sacramento Police Department's list of the 7 most collision-prone corridors in our area:

  1. The Alhambra corridor
  2. Downtown, including J, K & L Streets
  3. The 15th and 16th Street corridors
  4. Bruceville/Valley Hi area in South Sacramento
  5. Stockton Boulevard area
  6. Arden Way area
  7. Howe and Fair Oaks area

No matter where you might be this New Year's Eve or any time of year, stay safe, rested and alert on the road. Whether you are a parent taking your children to a relative's or a truck driver making a routine delivery, make sure to know what's happening around you in traffic. During periods of heightened stress and irresponsibility, there's no substitute for good situational awareness.
