It's an unfortunate reality that streets are dangerous here in California. Whether you are driving on city streets or highways, you are only as safe as the drivers around you, which can lead to dangerous situations and car accidents. Looking at information from the Fatality Analysis Reporting System, we put together some interactive pie graphs on traffic accidents by vehicle type in California and nationwide. Some of the results are not surprising. Passenger cars, for example, are responsible for the highest number of car accidents and deaths, at just over 43 percent. But motorcyclists, a small percent of the population, are responsible for a surprising 13 percent of all traffic fatalities, showing that they are particularly vulnerable to motorcycle accidents on the state and national level. And pedestrians, who rarely cause deadly traffic accidents, also make up nearly 13 percent of all traffic deaths. Vehicle drivers have the benefit of being protected by layers of metal and glass, while motorcyclists, cyclists, and pedestrians are left more vulnerable.
