In 2021, Los Angeles experienced its highest number of fatal traffic accidents in nearly two decades. In total, 294 people lost their lives in local traffic accidents during that year. The number of serious and fatal crashes in Los Angeles has been on the rise in recent years, despite the fact that government leaders have taken active steps to try and reduce these disheartening statistics. The cause for the increase in major accidents is not completely understood, but in many cases, accidents are caused by careless and reckless drivers.
