As the days get hotter, many California residents are spending more time at one of the hundreds of beaches the Golden State has to offer. It’s the best time of the year for families and friends to take a trip to the closest beach so they can sunbathe, catch some waves and build sand castles.

Westminster residents likely view their fellow motorists with a great deal of empathy, believing that everyone one the road around them does not want to be involved in an accident any more than they do. While that is most likely the case a majority of the time, there are those instances where the negligent actions of another endanger not just themselves, but everyone else on the road.
