Safe driving for the school year

Florida residents who want to be safety-minded drivers, especially during the school year, can take the following tips into account. While they cannot prevent all accidents, they can drastically reduce the chances of one. The first things to remember are the laws regarding school buses. It is illegal to pass a stopped school bus on an undivided highway.

Statistics show high number of distracted teen drivers in Florida

Like other Florida residents, you know that distracted driving is a serious issue that continues to affect the safety of everyone on the road. You may know teen drivers are among the most likely to drive while distracted, and they are more likely to cause car accidents for this reason. Research indicates that Florida is one of the top states for teen distracted driving in the country.

Roundabouts can reduce the risk of deadly car accidents

Most drivers in Florida are familiar with a few dangerous intersections in the state. For example, some roads with high speed limits come together with only a stop sign joining them. At night or in situations of low visibility, it can be far too easy for a devastating crash to occur. While traffic authorities can take action to improve the safety of these junction points by clearing away visual obstructions and adding additional warning signs, the intersections can remain the site of many crashes.

Safe driving tips for Florida motorists

Auto accidents can occur at any time through someone's negligence. While nobody can completely prevent crashes, Florida drivers can still reduce the chances of one through various safe practices. For example, drivers should keep their eyes on the road at all times, avoiding all cell phone use. They should not eat or reach for things that have fallen to the floor.

Is speed the biggest danger on Florida roadways?

Long ago, many people in Florida and elsewhere used to get in their cars to take leisurely drives with their loved ones. In fact, Sundays, in particular, were known for country drives, visits with relatives and potluck suppers at small community churches. Things have changed. You may feel like your life is at risk every time you get behind the wheel; the reality is that it often may be, especially if a reckless driver is in your midst.

Study claims that females are more likely to drive distracted

Experts say that mobile phone use is a factor in roughly a quarter of all car crashes throughout Florida and the rest of America. A study conducted by the Society for Risk Analysis shows that talking on a phone doubles the risk for a crash while texting increases that risk by sixfold. However, researchers found that many drivers are unconvinced of the dangers and have negative attitudes toward road safety.
