Burbank, California is nicknamed “Media Capital of the World” because NBC, Warner Brothers, Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, Walk Disney and many other film and TV production companies all have their headquarters located here. It is also home to (or at one time was home to) some of the biggest stars in the world including Jay Leno, Tom Petty, Martin Scorsese, John Ritter and Ron Howard. The city of Burbank is actually very small. It only consists of 17 square miles and is home to roughly 104,000 people, but it is surrounded by some of the biggest, most densely populated cities in the state including Los Angeles, Hollywood, Glendale and Sherman Oaks. Burbank is within 15 miles of some of the biggest, most popular theme parks in the world including Disneyland, Six Flags Magic Mountain, Knott’s Berry Farm and Universal Studios. It is also a short drive from some of the best beaches in the world and is conveniently located to many of Los Angeles County’s business and social hubs. On an average day 100,000 people will commute into Burbank to work, effectively doubling the size of the city. Burbank’s Bob Hope Airport adds to the daily population growth by offering roughly 70 flights per day.
This kind of traffic influx can cause some very challenging driving conditions. Recent improvements to the freeways have helped and the local public transit system can also alleviate some of these traffic issues, but heavy traffic, gridlock and dangerous driving conditions are still the norm in Burbank. Every day on the streets and highways of the city thousands of people will be involved in car accidents. Many of these will be simple fender benders and minor incidents, but others will be very serious and include major property damage and injuries.
