Florida Traffic Collisions
Florida is one of the most dangerous states for drivers, pedestrians, and motorcyclists alike. Traffic accidents in Florida are not an uncommon occurrence and critically injure hundreds of thousands of people per year. In 2018, The Sunshine State saw approximately 402,000 traffic accidents take place with more than 250,000 of them involving injury.
Over 155,000 people per year sustain debilitating injuries in Florida traffic accidents, and more than 3,000 lose their lives. Florida roadways can be extremely dangerous as most of them see a large number of traffic collisions. In fact, Interstate 4, located in Tampa, Florida is named the most dangerous highway in America with 1.25 fatalities per mile.
These accidents can take place for a multitude of different reasons, but currently, the leading cause of Florida traffic collisions is distracted driving. Distracted driving causes nearly 25% of all Florida car accidents. The other two most common causes of Florida car crashes are speeding and intoxication. Unfortunately, these are all preventable and negligent driver behaviors.
