Pasadena Freeway Accident Attorney
Pasadena Freeway – An Accident Waiting to Happen
Carolyn, a car accident client of the firm.
The Pasadena freeway, also known as the Arroyo Seco Parkway or the 110 freeway, is a magnet for freeway accidents in Los Angeles. Completed in 1940, it was the first major freeway built in California.
Considered a marvel of modern motoring when it was built, it is now considered narrow, outdated and dangerous. Over the years, many lawsuits have been filed against the city and county of Los Angeles alleging that the accidents happened due to the dangerous conditions of the 110 freeway.
Information We'll Ask For During Your Initial Consultation
Why the Pasadena Freeway is Dangerous
Caltrans officials have admitted that the freeway has a high rate of accidents, even though the posted speed limit is lower than for other freeways. The freeway is dangerous because there is no shoulder and the on-ramps and off-ramps are short. Quick acceleration and deceleration are required.
Drivers, as soon as they enter the freeway from the short on-ramps, must immediately merge with oncoming traffic. There is no room for error. Drivers must maintain a keen awareness of the traffic around them. Stopping for an emergency on the freeway can be particularly hazardous because there is no shoulder.
