Stockton, California has long been a comfortable middle-sized city with wonderful financial growth, exceeding the national average economic rate of development, and even better job prospects nestled comfortably between San Fransisco and Sacramento. Settled in this fiscally fertile valley it’s no surprise that the rate of growth has been so aggressive here in Stockton, but as we continue to grow so does the culture of commuting and our dependence on the automobile. Stockton is a leading city in the United States when it comes to commuting with nearly 90% of all commuters relying on automobiles for their daily transportation, also making Stockton one of the most dangerous places to drive.
Since 2015 Stockton has exceeded the average number of traffic deaths annually in California, with an average of 9.7 deaths per 100K people. Making Stockton the 3rd worst place to drive in California according to Patch.com. During the same period of time crashes that occurred inside of work zones had increased by 3% while the total number of crashes has decreased by just over 1% as reported by the Federal Highway Administration.
