High speed often plays a role in causing serious car accidents

The warmer climate in Florida often leads to heavier traffic regardless of the time of day. As result, the majority of motorists exercise caution while behind the wheel in order to avoid being involved in car accidents. Unfortunately, not every collision can be foreseen and prevented when another driver chooses to speed.

Certain times of the year see more drunk driving than others

You may not be surprised to know that at the end of year there are a higher number of people drinking and driving throughout the state of Florida. Because of the increased rate of drunk driving, government agencies and advocacy groups sponsor programs to educate drivers about the dangers of this type of behavior. 

Is having more fun a key to safer roads and fewer car accidents?

It seems that distraction is an ever-growing issue that threatens the health and well-being of every person on Florida roads. From cellphones to in-car technology, there are multiple things that could take a driver's attention from the task at hand and increase the chance of an accident. Both lawmakers and auto manufacturers are looking for ways to make driving safer and decrease the number of distraction-related accidents.

Busier seasons often mean increased chance of car accidents

During the last few months of the year, life seems to accelerate, with many errands and chores to complete while preparing for the cold months ahead. This often leads to increased traffic, and with it, the odds of being involved in car accidents increases significantly. Even in the Sunshine State, travel hazards are ever-present.

Florida car accidents often leave devastation in their wake

In just one moment, lives can be forever changed or even ended. When senseless car accidents claim the lives of innocent victims, the surviving families may spend the rest of their lives dealing with grief and loss. In the event that loved ones are harmed or killed by the negligence of another, justice and recompense may be available through the Florida civil justice system.

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.

Interactive game leads to increase in car accidents

Florida readers may remember when the popular game Pokémon Go attracted nationwide attention, especially in the months after the game's release. Players would use their cell phones to find certain characters in the game, and for some users, this came at great personal risk. Researchers found that for rural users, many of the places where a user could find a character were only accessible by car.

Does Florida need stronger distracted driving laws?

Distraction behind the wheel (cell phone use in particular) is one of the main problems affecting the health and safety of motorists, both in Florida and across the country. While most states have laws that make texting while driving a primary offense, Florida is one of the few states that does not. Some people question if the lack of a strong law prohibiting this type of negligent behavior could be partially to blame for this statewide problem.
