Cutter Law P.C.

Driver negligence is dangerous anywhere out on the roads. However, there are some areas where it can have particularly tragic consequences. For example, when drivers act unsafely in school zones, it could result in children getting struck and severely injured.

When their child’s life has been thrown upside-down through getting injured in such a crash, there are many things it can be critical for a parent to have a clear understanding of. One is what routes there are for pursuing just compensation for their child. Parents can seek out guidance on such compensation matters from experienced car accident lawyers.

Unfortunately, it appears that unsafe driver conduct in school zones might be a particularly common sight here in California. A recent study ranked the states on how safe students were in the school zones there based on how drivers act in such zones. It determined this based on data that came from the sensors of the mobile devices of around 4 million drivers.

California was ranked the most dangerous state in the country for students in school zones in the study.

California ranked particularly poorly when it comes to hard breaking and aggressive acceleration near schools. It was ranked the No. 1 worst state for the former and the No. 2 worst state for the latter.

Schools zones should be a safe place for students. Students can suffer considerable harm when they aren’t. So, one hopes all drivers in California will put a greater focus on acting responsibly in school zones and work hard to make such areas safer.
