Bakersfield, California Auto Insurance - Agents

Located at the southern end of the San Joaquin Valley in southern California, Bakersfield is the eleventh largest city and is part of Kern County. Divided into eight directional districts, the city is further broken down into smaller neighborhoods and districts.

Bakersfield’s borders stretch to the edge of the Sierra Nevada on one side and the Sequoia National Forest at the foot of the Greenhorn Mountain Range on the other. The city also sits near the Kern Canyon as well as the Tehachapi Mountains, the Temblor Range, Carrizo Plain National Monument and the San Andreas Fault.

With long-lasting summers and brief winters, Bakersfield is one of the sunniest cities in the country making the city qualified for producing unique agricultural products such as citrus fruits, cotton, almonds, alfalfa, and pistachios. The economy of Bakersfield is based on agriculture, manufacturing as well as petroleum extraction and refining. Kern County is the most oil productive county in the country, responsible for about 10% of domestic production.

Due to its location on the San Andreas Fault, Bakersfield is prone to earthquakes. In 1952 a series of severe quakes hit the area causing significant damage to Bakersfield and surrounding areas. The city is still at risk today for another similar event.

In 2006, Bakersfield was ranked the most ozone-polluted city in the nation by the American Lung Association and the second-most polluted city with regard to short-term and year-round particle pollution. As the city rapidly grows in size, pollution rates from new construction and automobile exhaust are increasing air pollution levels exponentially.

Of 237 cities surveyed, Bakersfield was ranked the eighth most conservative in the country and the most conservative within the state of California.

Gang membership and activity in Bakersfield has been increasing over the past decade. This has led to a subsequent rise in violent crime levels, drug abuse and gang-related murders and homicides. Despite the creation of a new anti-gang program under the City of Bakersfield Police Department, crime rates are continuing to rise.
