Putting a stop to distracted driving once and for all

Florida readers know that distracted driving is a widespread problem, yet despite awareness programs and other efforts, it doesn't appear to be going away anytime soon. Miami drivers remain susceptible to all the various forms of distraction, including cell phones and in-car infotainment systems.

Tampa-area car accident caused by street racing

When Florida drivers choose to act recklessly or negligently, it can be to the detriment of other innocent motorists on the road. One example of this is a recent Tampa-area car accident that left one person dead and two other people injured. The cause of this traumatic and deadly accident was street racing.

Your iPhone wants to make you a safer driver

What better time to be alive than in this technological age in which you can carry a small computer in your pocket that allows you to make calls, send messages and check the weather (among other things) no matter where you are. If your spouse beat you home and realized that you need milk, he or she can simply call or message you to pick some up on the way home. You can watch your favorite television show or movie while you wait, well, anywhere.

Traffic accidents in Florida are all too common

Carelessness and negligence are at the heart of most traffic accidents. In a typical year, about 374,000 accidents occur across the state, according to Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. It may be no surprise to you that drunk driving is one of the leading causes of accidents, especially fatal ones, in Florida and across the country. It doesn't take much alcohol to impair the judgement and reaction time of another driver, and you may have found yourself unable to avoid a collision.

Does giving tickets for not wearing seat belts save lives?

You have probably heard about motor vehicle accidents in which the driver or a passenger flew out of the vehicle or bounced around inside of it during the impact and either died or suffered severe injuries. The police and the media are quick to point out that if that person had been wearing a seat belt, he or she might have walked away unscathed.

Red-light cameras put a stop to intersection accidents

Have you ever received an envelope in the mail from the Miami Red-Light Camera Enforcement & Intersection Safety Program? If so, you probably found inside a notice of violation and a snapshot of your car from various angles, including a closeup of your car's rear license plate, as you crossed an intersection on a red light. The notice informed you of the details of the infraction and the fine you owed, which was not cheap.

When dirt bike 'flash mobs' appear on the roadways

The words "flash mob" may bring up videos on YouTube of a group of people suddenly breaking out in song at a local mall. Those videos often make people smile, and you may be one of them. However, a much more dangerous type of flash mob appears to be gaining popularity on the roadways, and you will more than likely not be pleased to see one.

Crossing the street shouldn’t mean walking into danger

Pedestrians face certain risks due to careless and inattentive drivers, and statistics indicate that the risk of injury could be increasing. According to a study released by the Governor’s Highway Safety Association, last year was the deadliest year for pedestrians since 1996. In fact, even seemingly safe actions, such as crossing the street at a marked pedestrian walkway, could be more dangerous than before.
