Fatal Accidents in Florida
Intersections are known for being some of the most dangerous places on roads across the U.S. In fact, in just one recent year’s time, it was determined that approximately 2.5 million intersection accidents occurred in the entire country, with many of these leading to injuries and fatalities. Florida is known for having more fatal collisions than many other states in the U.S., which is why drivers are urged to abide by the rules of the road and to be cautious to others so that these accidents can be prevented. However, lives continue to be lost throughout one year’s time.
The Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles Department estimated that, in one recent year in Florida, over 2,400 people lost their lives in collisions due to the negligence of others. These accidents occur due to many different reasons including distracted driving, intoxication, speeding, and many other aspects.
