Several major freeways connect to San Francisco. Interstate 80 is the only direct link to San Francisco via car. U.S. 101 connects to the western side of I-80. From the north, you can reach San Francisco via State Route 1 through the Golden Gate Bridge. From the south, you can travel via State Route 35, which ends at State Route 1.
Given that so many people live in such a small area (49 square miles), driving and finding parking is extremely difficult. It’s also inconvenient. Therefore, residents use other forms of transportation to get from Point A to Point B. San Francisco ranks first in the west for public transportation use among commuters. More than 30 percent of the city’s residents use Muni, Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART), CalTrain and Amtrak to get to work on a daily basis.
Cable cars are also popular in the city. There is also a ferry that takes passengers to nearby cities such as Oakland, Alameda, and Vallejo. Walking and bicycling are also common, as are ridesharing and taxis.
With daily commutes, traffic accidents are an unfortunate daily occurrence in San Francisco.
San Francisco Traffic Accidents
San Francisco is one of many large cities that adopted the Vision Zero initiative. The goal is to eliminate pedestrian deaths altogether in a time span of 10 years. While most cities saw decreases in traffic fatalities after adopting this initiative, San Francisco was the exception.
In 2013, there were 34 deaths related to traffic accidents in San Francisco. That number went down to 29 in 2014. Most of these deaths involved bicyclists and pedestrians. In fact, 10 percent were bicyclists and 59 percent were pedestrians.
There are 1,200 miles of road in San Francisco. Approximately 70 percent of the serious accidents in the city occur on 125 miles of road.

Do I Need A Personal Injury Lawyer?
If you have been injured by a third party, you could be dealing with the resulting injuries for many years – perhaps even the rest of your life. Medical bills could amount to hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars. If you don’t hold the liable party responsible for the accident, you’ll be on the hook for all of your medical expenses, losses and damages.
That’s why the right legal help is so important. The personal injury lawyers at Nadrich & Cohen have helped thousands of clients recover compensation for injury accidents, and they can help you too.
We have been helping personal injury victims since 1990. We have offices all over California, including San Francisco and the surrounding areas, so we’re local to you. We can handle personal injury cases of all types.
