Are self-driving cars the key to safer Florida roads?

Like many other Florida drivers, you may have concerns about how safe self-driving vehicles will truly be. You know that many auto manufacturers are working diligently to be the first to release an autonomous vehicle for widespread consumer use, which means you could be sharing the roads with a car or truck that is driving itself in the near future. Is it possible these vehicles will make Florida roads safer? 

Why does fault matter after a car accident in Florida?

Every state follows its own rules when it comes to personal injury claims. Florida is one of the few states that has what's commonly called "no-fault" rules for car wrecks. Injured drivers are generally expected to pursue compensation for their injuries from their own insurance companies first before seeking compensation from the other party.

'Right on red' accidents and motorcycles: What you need to know

If you've spent any time at all on a motorcycle, you're conscious of the fact that you're very vulnerable. There's no steel frame or glass windshield between you and the concrete if you're involved in a wreck with another vehicle. That's why it's always wise to be alert to the dangers that are around you -- particularly at intersections.

Pedestrians and cars aren't a good match

Being a pedestrian can be hazardous to your health. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) data shows that drivers struck and killed nearly 6,000 pedestrians in the United States in 2017. That equates to approximately one fatality every 88 minutes. Emergency room doctors treat almost 140,000 pedestrians for non-life threatening injuries every year. CDC data also reveals that pedestrians are 1.5 times more likely to be killed than motorists traveling in vehicles.
