Hi, my name is David Gammill — injury lawyer.
Torrance’s Turtle Initiative Improves Safety by Preventing Accidents and Injuries on South Bay Streets.
November 30, 2023 | Attorney, David Gammill
The turtle is becoming a symbol of safety in the South Bay region. You can see it on Torrance’s busy streets and the scenic routes that connect our diverse communities. Torrance believes in prioritizing safety over speed and is taking steps to support this mission. At Gammill Law, Torrance’s dedicated accident lawyers, we’re committed to upholding this mission and championing the rights of those affected by traffic incidents.
According to South Bay Cities Council of Governments research, 64% of all trips originating in the South Bay also ended in the South Bay. The average length of a trip was seven minutes. Just 9% of travel that originated in the South Bay ended outside of its 25-mile radius.
The Turtle Campaign: A Sign of Safer Times
The South Bay Cities Council of Governments introduced a new mascot, the turtle, for their road safety campaign. This initiative is part of the upcoming Local Travel Network. It aims to make low-speed vehicles more visible in 25 mph zones. Low-speed vehicles include e-bikes, golf carts, and e-scooters.
