Kuvara Law Firm has released an inaugural report compiling five years' worth of accident data into an interactive map.

SAN RAFAEL, Calif. - July 11, 2018 - eTradeWire -- It's no secret that California is not the safest state for drivers. In fact, there are over nine deaths a day in California due to road related crashes. Accidents occur everywhere, but intersections are known hot spots for vehicle crashes. Over 50% of all fatal and injury related crashes occur at or near an intersection according to the Federal Highway Administration.

To find the troublesome intersections in San Rafael, Kuvara Law Firm compiled five years of data from California's Office of Traffic Safety. Every single accident to occur in San Rafael since January 1st of 2013 is included in the San Rafael Accident Map to create the first interactive road study of its kind for the San Rafael area.

"We wanted to emphasize the importance of road safety and a map seemed like the perfect way to do that," remarked founding attorney, Neal Kuvara. When you interact with the map you can see where accidents are occurring and where the hot spots for crashes are.

How does San Rafael fare? There was a total of 4,891 accidents, 2,026 injuries, and 14 deaths over the course of the last five years. Accidents have increased 16.3% from 2013 to 2017.
