Davisville, incorporated in 1868, was a depot along the Southern Pacific Railroad. The bustling whistle stop continued to grow, and in 1907 the name was shortened to Davis by the postmaster for the area. Davis is currently Yolo County’s largest city with a population of more than 65,000 people. In addition, 5,500 people call the University of California at Davis their home away from home.
The university’s presence has led to Davis being named the second-most educated city in the country based on percentage of adults with graduate degrees. Politically liberal and focused on physical fitness, Davis residents take to the roads in electric cars and bicycles more often than in other forms of transportation. Multitudes of bike paths line the city and are in constant use by residents and students. However, this bike-friendly culture also poses a threat to the safety of riders every day, as the area also becomes more crowded with motor vehicles.
Last year, Davis had the following motor vehicle accident statistics, according to the Statewide Integrated Traffic Reporting System of the California Highway Patrol:
Clearly, the bicycle culture in Davis has led to high numbers of bicycle injury accidents, although for its size, the city also has a relatively high number of motor vehicle accidents.
