As Lancaster drunk-driving accident lawyers, R. Rex Parris Law Firm's attorneys sadly hear about a lot of wrongful death and major injury cases that are caused by DUI drivers. Here's a frightening California car accident statistic to ponder: from 2006 to 2009, on a 45-mile stretch of SR-14 running between the 5-14 split and Lancaster, CA, 349 people were either injured or died in a California DUI car accident. That's according to LA County DUI accident statistics from the "ArriveAlive on SR-14" Sober Driving Coalition.
That grim DUI accident statistic is changing for the better.
It's sobering news. When you step back and do the math, it means that roughly, for every eighth of a mile you drive on the CA SR-14 corridor, someone was a victim of a California DUI car accident--and some of those victims wound up being drunk driving deaths. Every eighth of a mile.
The "Arrive Alive on SR-14" program aims to reduce the number of alcohol-related car accidents in Los Angeles County -- specifically, on the stretch of SR-14 between Santa Clarita and Lancaster, CA. In addition to the above statistic, it's a stretch of road that's sadly seen its share of DUI accidents and alcohol-related deaths -- with 4,057 Santa Clarita and Antelope Valley DUI arrests -- from 2007 to 2009.
In support of Arrive Alive, California Highway Patrol (CHP) officers from the Antelope Valley and Santa Clarita areas have been ramping up efforts to curtail drunk driving by increasing DUI enforcement on the roads. The CHP is on the lookout for California drivers who drive under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs resulting in speeding or making improper turns or unsafe passes. The officers will strictly enforce CA traffic laws.
R. Rex Parris is a proud member of the "Arrive Alive on SR-14" Sober Driving Coalition. While our firm is often called upon to help Santa Clarita and Antelope Valley DUI victims in a California DUI lawsuit, we hope that someday there won't be much need for a Lancaster DUI attorney -- or drunk driving accident lawyers in general -- because programs like "Arrive Alive on SR-14" will be a success.
