Avoiding Automobile Accidents

Representing Orlando, Tampa, Miami and Nearby Areas of Florida

About every 12 minutes in America, someone dies in a fatal automobile accident. Florida roadways are some of the most crowded in the country, making them some of the most dangerous in the country. In addition, Florida roads attract visitors from other states and countries. These visitors are often unfamiliar with the roads, further increasing the risk of a serious automobile accident.

Accidents happen, despite the best efforts of many drivers. Try your best to remain safe on the road:
  • Don’t let yourself be distracted;
  • Be alert to driving and your surroundings;
  • Don’t use a cell phone or other electronic communication device while driving;
  • Get plenty of rest and don’t drive when you’re tired;
  • Keep you car maintained, including especially your tires and brakes;
  • Plan your trips, and know where you’re going;
  • Wear your seatbelt;
  • And of course, don’t drink and drive.
