Traffic Circle Accidents

Long Beach Traffic Circle Accident Lawyer

The Long Beach traffic circle is ranked as the #1 intersection for accidents in Long Beach. Serious injuries resulting from car accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents, and pedestrian accidents occur on a regular basis. If you have been the victim of an accident at the traffic circle, you should consult with a Long Beach personal injury attorney to learn your rights.

About the Long Beach Traffic Circle

Formally known as the Los Alamitos Traffic Circle, the Long Beach Traffic Circle connects Pacific Coast Highway, Lakewood Blvd. and Los Coyotes Diagonal. Built in 1932, it can accommodate 6,000 vehicles per hour, and is ranked as the highest-capacity traffic circle in California, and perhaps the nation.

According to traffic circle proponents, more traffic can get through a circle than through a signaled intersection, and accidents tend to be less catastrophic – sideswipes instead of broadside collisions.

Long Beach Traffic Circle Accident Dangers

Opponents of the Long Beach traffic circle, however, denounce it as confusing, dangerous, and pedestrian-unfriendly. According to the city's own head traffic engineer, David Roseman, the traffic circle is too large. Because it is too large, people drive too fast inside the circle, making merging and vehicle control more tricky.

Another major problem is that there is no lane striping inside the circle. The roadway is big enough for four lanes. Drivers are left to waltz in and out of traffic without lines to guide them.
