Does Florida lack the right laws to keep motorists safe?

If you are a Florida driver, you likely know that some motorists tend to be quite reckless. The state has a reputation for bad drivers, and there may be some truth behind this assumption because the state does not have as many traffic laws as other states do. This may be one of the many reasons for the high number of highway accidents and injuries.

Coalition aims to put an end to roadway deaths

Traffic accidents take thousands of lives every year in Florida and across the United States. Nationwide, over 100 people are killed in roadway crashes every day, a number that points to a serious public concern about highway safety. As a result of these disturbing statistics, the National Safety Council has launched a new project, the Road to Zero Coalition, aiming to achieve zero traffic fatalities by 2050. While coalition spokespeople said that achieving zero deaths in car accidents may seem to be an impossible dream, they noted that setting the goal may play an important role in achieving a significant reduction in deaths.

Fatal Florida crash blamed on reckless truck driver

The Florida Highway Patrol says that the sequence of events that led to a fiery crash on the afternoon of Jan. 3 began when a semi-tractor trailer driver made an unsafe maneuver. A records check reveals that the 59-year-old Palm Beach County man was ticketed several times between 2000 and 2014 by police in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Virginia, and Indiana, as well as Florida, for violations including speeding, driving without proof of insurance, operating an unsafe vehicle and operating an overloaded vehicle.

Medication helps lower car crash risk for ADHD patients

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder is a neurodevelopmental condition characterized by inattention and impulsivity. These core symptoms can interfere with one's driving, which is why ADHD patients tend to run a high risk for car crashes. Florida motorists should know about a study published in JAMA Psychiatry back in 2017 that shows how ADHD medication can help lower that risk.
