San Francisco Car Accident Lawyer - Auto Accident Attorney
Michael Rehm - (415) 230-2346
Compared to other large cities, San Francisco is the most dangerous city for drivers in California. Drivers are more likely to be injured in San Francisco than in any other large California city.
Much of San Francisco's charm comes from the hills on which the city is built. Unfortunately, traffic congestion on steep downhill roads is a recipe for collisions. Rain and fog also contribute to the danger.
San Francisco attracts tourists who enjoy the sights at Fisherman's Wharf, Coit Tower, and Chinatown. Tourists who tire of walking often contact Uber or Lyft for a ride. Ride-sharing drivers are responsible for a significant percentage of San Francisco car crashes.
