Increase in Accident Prevention Efforts on Angeles Crest Highway June 17th, 2011 Angeles CrestRead More Highway Accidents Good news for scenic route drivers! The California Department of Transportation has just reopened the Angeles Crest Highway, a popular route for motorcyclists. As more motorcyclists get on the accident-prone highway, the California Highway Patrol has announced an increase in enforcement on this particular route. The Angeles Crest Highway offers motorcyclists a scenic ride, and has long been popular with bikers. However, the highway with its sharp curves and steep cliffs can be rife with accident risks for motorcyclists. The California Highway Patrol is advising motorcyclists this summer to take more care on the accident prone route. The motorcycle safety enforcement initiative is being funded by a grant by the California Office of Traffic Safety. The money will be used to step up enforcement against traffic violations by motorcyclists and drivers. According to the California Highway Patrol, the Angeles Crest Highway has one of the highest accident rates in California. State data shows that 164 motorcycle accidents occurred on one particular stretch of the highway from Starlight Crest Drive to Route 39 over a one-year period. Eight of these accidents ended in fatalities. Speeding, in fact, was a major factor in motorcycle accidents on the Angeles Crest Highway, accounting for more than 98 of the accidents.

Good question. I figure they're doing what they can with the resources they can spare. Just a guessRead More though - I'm certainly no expert. As a motorcyclist, the possibility of a ticket or of running off the mountain is enough to keep my own speed down but then, I'm not big on adrenaline rushes anyway. I suppose some good might be done if there was a way to call more attention to the fact that the Angeles Crest Highway is an extremely unforgiving road with little room for error or correction. Signs? A Public Service Announcement? Unlikely. One of the major motorcycle magazines did an article on it a while back which gave me a healthy respect for it. Then again that can backfire and act as a magnet for the thrill seekers. Again, good question.
