WEAR reports that hit and run wrecks are increasing in Florida. As a consequence, the state is starting a new campaign to let everyone know that leaving the scene of a crash can end in tougher penalties. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement says people killed in hit and runs jumped 23% from 2013 to 2014. The numbers have jumped by 12,000 cases between 2012 and last year with 184 deaths and more than 2,100 injuries. The Florida Highway Patrol says leaving the scene of an accident is a bad decision not turning yourself in makes a bad decision worse. Under new law signed by Governor Scott called the Aaron Cohen Life Protection Act leaving the scene of a fatal hit and run is mandatory jail time of 4 years. It makes leaving the scene of a wreck a second-degree felony.
