Tourists aren't the only ones who can be distracted while driving

As a resident of Fort Walton Beach, you undoubtedly understand why tourists come to your area on vacation. The ocean, the sand, local attractions and beautiful views make a wonderful place to visit or, in your case, live permanently. Of course, you likely also understand that these positive points can also act as distractions for tourists driving around town.

Fireworks and drunk driving pose dangers on July 4th

Florida residents probably know that things can get hectic on holidays, but they may not know that the deadliest of all the nation's holidays is the Fourth of July. According to the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety and Esurance, it is the single worst day for fatal car crashes. Between 2007 and 2011, drunk drivers caused 40 percent of all highway deaths between June 30 and July 4. The same five-day period also sees around 200 traffic deaths each year.

Brake safety is the focus of September truck inspection event

Truckers in Florida and across the country might want to get ready for the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance's annual Brake Safety Week, which is coming up in September. The CVSA announced that the event for 2018 will be held from Sept. 16-22. It will mark a return to a full week dedicated to the event after it had been only held for one day last year.

Reducing distractions on the road with new tech

Smartphones provide drivers in Florida with so many distractions that they are becoming a major influence on car crash rates. AT&T, Sprint and Verizon each offer a free app that can silence all incoming communications and prevent drivers from texting while the car is in motion, but these capabilities can be inadequate in stopping distracted driving. This is where two new devices come in.

Steps to take after a car accident for an insurance claim

People in Florida have an obligation to stop after any kind of motor vehicle accident, even a minor one. Although emotions often run high after a wreck, people should refrain from discussing liability at the scene of accidents. Automobile insurance contracts require policy holders to never assume any kind of responsibility. Liability will be determined by the insurance company or other parties.
