A driver can expect to get in an accident once every 7.6 years, or 31.5% more often than the typical city in the survey.
Yet, even though accidents are frequent the severity is lower than might be expected. Alameda County reported 64 traffic fatalities in 2010 according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. While this is still too many it did not place the county in the top 10 worst counties in the state despite being the 7th most populous. Therefore, even though Oakland has a high number of accidents relatively few result in deaths.
Nevertheless, you should still be careful when you drive. Avoid drinking and driving and pay attention to traffic reports to avoid problem hot spots.
