According to the California Highway Patrol, there were 1530 individuals injured in motor vehicle accidents in Long Beach in 2012. According to the same report, there were 308 bicyclists and 111 motorcyclists injured during the same period.
According to the report, even individuals that were using safety equipment were injured. However, other reports and studies have shown that using safety equipment greatly increases an individual’s chances of surviving an accident and reducing the severity of injuries.
Long Beach is a large metropolitan area that has thousands of motor vehicles on the roadways each day which means accidents happen daily somewhere in the city.
