Tampa bicycle accidents: Even worse when hit-and-runs?

Bicycle accidents are bad enough, but a hit-and-run accident involving a cyclist is almost like adding insult to injury. In a city right across the bay from Tampa, just such a hit-and-run bicycle accident occurred recently. Luckily, police believe they may have found the driver who was involved, though the incident is still under investigation.

Is your vehicle capable of keeping you safe?

Cars are much safer now than they used to be, and more people are living through serious car crashes than ever before, thanks in part to safer vehicles. Over the last few decades, regulations, research and technology have led to increased safety measures in newer vehicles.

Bicycle accidents plague Florida school children

Walking or biking to school can be a joy for many children. Unfortunately, not every child in Jacksonville and Tampa have access to a safe route to school, and getting there can put them in danger. One Florida mother recently began tracking the number of pedestrian and bicycle accidents for the children at her local school after courtesy busing to the area was cancelled.

What we all need to know about autonomous vehicles

Self-driving cars are the future. In fact, there are many self-driving cars already in the testing phase. The race to be the company to accomplish the feat of releasing the first self-driving car is in full swing, with several major players working hard to be the leader in this field. For some, the technology behind this concept is exciting, but for many, it causes grave concerns and raises important questions. 

Drowsy driving could have fatal implications

Almost every driver would admit to getting behind the wheel of a vehicle while a sleepy from time to time. However, there are times when a person is more than just a little tired, and getting behind the wheel is a little dangerous. Drowsy driving is risky, and while it may seem rather benign, it can have fatal implications for every person on Florida roads.

Fatal pedestrian accidents may lead to legal claims in Florida

Hit-and-run accidents are events that can easily make an already difficult situation more complicated than necessary. With pedestrian accidents, individuals who are injured in the event could suffer longer than necessary without medical attention if a driver does not remain on the scene to call emergency services or offer assistance. Furthermore, leaving the scene of an accident also results in an additional criminal element.

Distraction continues to threaten the safety of all motorists

Florida readers know that distraction is one the leading issues posing a threat to driver safety. When a person is driving distracted, he or she is a threat to everyone else on the road, and even a moment of inattentiveness could lead to devastating consequences. Texting and driving and other phone-related activities continue to be some of the most common sources of distraction.

Pedestrian accidents: Hit-and-run driver returns to deadly scene

Losing a loved one in an accident is naturally a traumatic experience. However, cases of hit-and-run pedestrian accidents may exacerbate the trauma. Such incidents typically leave the surviving family members with many unanswered questions. Such may be the case for the family of a 31-year-old woman who was killed in Florida on a recent Sunday evening.
