Motor Vehicle Accidents in the Salinas Valley and Central Coast

Tourism is one of the major industries of the Central Coast attracting hundreds of thousands of visitors to the area from all parts of the world. Visitors come for the beauty of the area as well as known tourist attractions. Just a few tourist attractions are 17 Mile Drive, the Monterey Aquarium, the original State Courthouse, Big Sur, San Juan Bautista Mission, Steinbeck Library, Elkhorn Slough, the Boardwalk, and the Monterey Bay. The local highways, state routes, city streets and rural roadways, play host to hundreds of thousands of foreign and domestic tourists who are unfamiliar with the area and rules of the road, many of which are lost and frequently distracted. What makes the Central Coast a popular tourist destination also makes it one of the more dangerous areas to drive, ride a bike or be a pedestrian.

Combine traffic congestion with the fact that the Coast Highway and areas surrounding Salinas also have a bustling flow of bicyclists and motorcycle traffic, foggy and wet driving conditions, and steep winding roads and you end up with a higher potential for car accidents, trucking accidents, bicycle accidents, motorcycle accidents, and pedestrian injuries. These conditions only intensify the inherent risk everyone accepts when entering any motor vehicle.

Along with tourism, the agricultural business is the main business of the Central Coast. Scattered throughout Salinas, Castroville, Watsonville, and large areas of Monterey, San Benito, and Santa Cruz counties are fields of crops, farms, coolers and other businesses servicing the growing and transporting of the crops. Commercial agricultural vehicles - big rigs, trucks pulling trailers, and farming vehicles - commute to and from the fields preparing and storing crops for transport. Large trucks transport crops for distribution all over the United States. Individuals share the same city and rural roadways and highways with these agricultural vehicles. When accidents occur, passenger vehicles are at a disadvantage because of their small size. The risks of catastrophic injuries and wrongful death accidents to Central Coast residents and visitors are much higher and the extent of injuries much worse.
