Florida Auto Accidents
Car accidents in Florida are estimated to take place approximately once every 84 seconds, or over 1,000 times per day. Yearly, Florida sees about 400,000 traffic accidents take place. In 2017, Florida saw a whopping 388,032 traffic crashes occur causing debilitating injuries to more than 155,000 people. The daily accident rate in Florida for 2017 sat at around 1,098 traffic accidents per day. The daily fatality rate in Florida due to car accidents currently sits at around 9 people per day, or one person losing their life every three hours.
The car accident rate in the Sunshine State is the highest in the nation, and Florida is ranked as one of the most dangerous states to travel through due to its high accident-fatality rate. However, Florida is one of the most highly-populated states in the United States, which directly correlates with its statistical values and increases the risk of car accidents on its roadways.
