Distractions May Have Caused Golden Gate Bridge Crashes

Distractions May Have Caused Golden Gate Bridge Crashes - | Needham Kepner & Fish

The Golden Gate Bridge has a new safety addition, but that same addition may be causing problems for drivers. The new safety feature is a movable traffic barrier that keeps cars from crossing over into oncoming traffic. The barrier was put in place in reaction to a tragic accident that occurred when a vehicle crossed too far left and into the oncoming traffic.

However, the barrier and the new machines that move the barrier are unusual sights for the commuters that use the Golden Gate Bridge. An abnormal sight could prove distracting for drivers and may be why more than seven cars were involved in vehicle accidents the day after the barrier was put in place.

If you or a loved one are injured in a vehicle accident, there may be other factors and parties involved.
