Despite the well-known dangers of engaging in this type of behavior, Tampa drivers still drive while distracted every day.

Drugged driving poses a serious threat

Impaired driving is always dangerous driving, regardless of the specific factors contributing to the impairment.

What types of damages can you pursue after a car accident?

An accident can change your life in a split second. Even if there are not serious physical injuries, the emotional scarring can run deep.

Know the signs of distracted driving

You can do everything in your power to keep yourself, your passengers and all others in your vicinity as safe as possible when you get behind the wheel to drive.
