Car Crashes in Florida
Florida sees close to 400,000 car crashes per year or more. The most common cause of these crashes is careless or negligent driving. This means that the driver responsible for the crash was not taking into account curves, traffic laws & regulations, road width, steepness, and other conditions that may affect a person’s driving abilities. Careless and negligent driving is the cause of nearly a quarter of all traffic accident cases in the Sunshine State.
Some other common causes of Florida traffic accidents are speeding and intoxication. These are all erroneous human behaviors that can be easily corrected with mindfulness and consideration for others on the road.
