Megeredchian Law has compiled five years' worth of accident data into an interactive map for an inaugural report in an effort to make the city's roadways safer.

GLENDALE, Calif. - July 11, 2018 - eTradeWire -- Every year there are over nine deaths a day in California due to road related crashes. According to the Federal Highway Administration, over 50% of all fatal and injury crashes occur at or near an intersection.

In an effort to highlight the intersections where accident are occurring, Megeredchian Law compiled five years' worth of accident data from California's Office of Traffic Safety. Every single accident recorded in the past five years has been mapped to its corresponding crash location to create the first interactive road study of its kind for the Glendale area.

"We created the map to emphasize the importance of road safety," founding attorney Alex Megeredchian remarked. "The map makes it easier for everyone to see where accidents are occurring more frequently so that drivers can remain alert and aware while out on the road."
