Car accidents happen on Florida roads each and every day. Many collisions happen because drivers are too distracted to pay attention to what is happening around them. When a driver is looking at their cell phone, typing a text, or changing their music playlist, they may miss the presence of other vehicles, bicycles, or pedestrians near them.
Truckers are behind the wheels of vehicles that are much larger and heavier than other types of vehicles on the road, and commercial trucks can cause significant damage in a collision. This is why distracted truckers are a serious safety threat. Every person driving a truck has the responsibility to drive safely and carefully, including avoiding distractions.
It is not uncommon for a Florida driver to have this frustrating experience. After parking their vehicle and going into a store or restaurant, they return to their automobile only to find that someone hit them and caused their car damage. Even if the damage is minor, they may be further angered by the fact that the responsible party drove off without leaving their contact information or a note.
Motorcycles may be a fun and efficient way to travel across the state of Florida, but they can also be a very dangerous mode of transportation. Even when a motorcyclist takes every possible safety precaution, educates themselves on how to drive in different conditions and places, and follows all of the laws of the roads, they may still suffer serious harm in a collision. That is because it is often the fault of vehicle drivers who do not pay attention to their surroundings and collide with otherwise safe riders.
Earlier this year, Florida repealed its ban on smoking marijuana for medicinal purposes. This may mean that more people will be using smokable marijuana than before the repeal. While this might not seem like such a big deal to some, when it comes to operating an automobile, a drugged driver can be just as dangerous as a drunk driver.
Most people in Florida understand that drunk driving is dangerous. If they cause a drunk driving accident, they could end up injuring innocent people.
