The mention of Palm Springs can evoke the thought of certain iconic images. We visualize long, straight roads lined with majestic palm trees; world-class golf resorts; and high-end sports cars cruising down El Paseo. These are all scenes associated with this relatively small city of under 50,000 permanent residents. The place is typically a destination for vacationers and retirees to relax and enjoy the sun. However, its beauty can lead to complacency about the possibility of danger. Rarely do we consider the probability of being involved in a Palm Springs car accident. Unfortunately, based on recent data, there is cause for concern. The risk of being involved in a Palm Springs car accident is rising.
TIMS, or Transportation Injury Mapping System, is a database available to the public. The University of California-Berkeley built and maintains this database.
