How to stay safe on Halloween

While Halloween may be a time of revelry for children in Florida and throughout the country, it can be a dangerous day as well. There is a 12-hour window starting at 6 p.m. on October 31 that lasts until 6 a.m. on November 1 in which people are most likely to be killed in drunk driving accidents, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Teen driver safety

Teen drivers in Florida are statistically more likely to be involved in serious car accidents than drivers in all other age groups. The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety has released driver statistics regarding teen driver safety ahead of National Teen Driver Safety Week.

Dram shop liability and your drunk driving accident

Drunk driving is an irresponsible and preventable type of reckless driving, and it can greatly increase the chance of a Florida driver causing an accident. If you are the victim of this type of accident, you may wonder who is to blame and how you can move forward to protect your rights. One important step in the process of securing the right type of recovery is determining who is liable for your pain and suffering.

Eating as you drive may be more dangerous than you think

Most Florida drivers have probably pulled into a drive-thru or brought food from home on their commute so they can eat on the run. Eating while driving is extremely common, and unfortunately, it can be extremely dangerous. In fact, for many drivers, eating is terribly distracting and can greatly increase the chances of a car accident.

Large truck crash deaths went up in 2017, says NHTSA

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has released its report on fatal car crashes for 2017, and it appears that fatalities went down in every type of accident except in large truck crashes. This should give some Florida residents cause for concern. There may be multiple reasons for this trend, but the report focuses instead on the statistics.

AAA uncovers dangerous overreliance on car safety tech

Drivers in Florida who use car safety features like blind-spot monitoring and automatic emergency braking run the risk of becoming complacent on the road. It should be kept in mind that such features are meant to assist, not replace, drivers. However, a report from the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety shows that overreliance on car safety tech is a widespread trend.
