The City of Glendale is the third largest city in Los Angeles County, California. Situated in the San Fernando Valley, just over the hills from Los Angeles, Glendale is bordered by the Los Angeles neighborhoods of Burbank, Eagle Rock, Pasadena and Atwater Village.
Nicknamed The Jewel City, Glendale measures more than 30 square miles in size, and features a diverse population of more than 191,700 people. In fact, the City of Glendale has become widely known as one of the most vibrant and significant Armenian communities in the United States.
Additionally, the community has been designated as one of the best neighborhoods in Los Angeles, last taking home the honor in 2013 from Curbed.com.
Because Southern California experiences such agreeable weather and temperatures nearly year-round, the city of Los Angeles, including the community of Glendale, has developed a reputation as a haven for motorcycle enthusiasts. As a result, the area tends to see a higher concentration of motorcycle accidents, some of which may be severe.
Motorcycle Accidents in Glendale, California
In the United States, motorcycle accidents account for a significant portion of collisions involving other motor vehicles – roughly 56 percent. Unfortunately, the overwhelming majority of motorcycle and automobile collisions are severe, with nearly 80 percent of cases involving a head-on collision, circumstances that typically prove fatal for the motorcyclist.
Due to the dangers and severity of these types of accidents, it is increasingly important for both motorcyclists and other motorists alike to exercise additional caution when navigating the state’s densely populated roadways. Failure to do so elevates the risk that an incident, even a fatal one, may occur.
However, despite many attempts to eliminate distraction behind the wheel, many collisions involving motorcyclists continue to involve a degree of carelessness, or even negligence. For example, the most common, and dangerous, situation for motorcycle operators continues to be when cars make left-hand turns and strike the motorcyclist while they are:
- Passing the vehicle
- Proceeding straight through the intersection
- Attempting to overtake the car
Though this scenario is common in situations involving two automobiles or trucks, the fact that the motorcycle is both smaller and size and more exposed makes the rider that much more vulnerable to significant personal injury, including:
- Cuts, bruises or other abrasions
- Broken bones
- Head or brain injuries
- Spinal injuries
- Post traumatic stress or related emotional disorders
