Daily Mail (UK): April 20, 2020 -- Car crashes in California drop 50% after shelter in place order - saving taxpayers $40m a day

The number of car crashes in California has decreased by over 50 per cent, saving tax payers $40million dollars a day.

The sharp decrease in accidents follows the state's 'shelter in place' order to limit the coronavirus spread, according to a new survey.

The UC Davis research concluded the lack of crashes was a result of 'statistically significant' changes in traffic volume.
