Holidays Risky On Roadways

Representing Orlando, Tampa, Miami and Nearby Areas of Florida

According to the Florida Department of Highway Safety & Motor Vehicles, there were over one quarter million automobile accidents in Florida in 2006. There were over 3,000 deaths, and there were over 200,000 injuries.


There’s no question about it. Whether you realize it or not, perhaps the most dangerous thing you do every day is get behind the wheel of your automobile. That’s just on ordinary days. With elevated levels of traffic, the holiday seasons are even more dangerous than the average day. Drivers are distracted, their attention directed to joyous times with family and friends. As you take to the highways this Thanksgiving holiday week, remember how dangerous driving in Florida can be. Pay attention, and arrive alive.

Be thankful this season for all the blessings life has given you and your family. Especially your good health. CGWC wishes you and your family a Happy and Safe Thanksgiving!
