Approximately 13 miles from downtown Los Angeles is the city of Arcadia, California, a community that has become known for its family-friendly atmosphere.
Situated in the San Gabriel Valley, Arcadia measures only 11 square miles in size and features a population of approximately 56,300 people, many of which are families. In fact, recent figures for Arcadia estimate that as many as 40 percent of households include one or two parents with small children.
Despite its reputation as a family-friendly community, Arcadia is located in one of the most at-risk areas for motor vehicle accidents in the country – the city of Los Angeles. As a result, residents must exercise a certain degree of caution when sharing the roadways with other drivers, or risk personal injury due to an accident.
