Why Are There So Many Pedestrian Accidents In Florida?

Why Are There So Many Pedestrian Accidents In Florida?

According to the most recent data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, almost 20% of fatal traffic accidents in Florida involved pedestrian fatalities. There are almost 5,000 pedestrian deaths annually, and in Florida alone in 2010 there were about 500 pedestrian deaths. Why are there so many pedestrian fatalities in Florida? Most likely, this is not a function of bad roads or safety systems, but rather, Florida has good weather for walking most of the year, a booming population of automobiles, and an active population. This is the perfect brew for more fatalities than other states where folks are more likely to stay inside due to inclement weather. So, especially in Florida, watch for pedestrians. Look twice. Be attentive. Don’t drive distracted or fatigued. If you or someone close to you is involved in an automobile accident, contact us for a free consultation, and don’t wait. Delay in consulting counsel can prejudice your legal rights under your own automobile insurance policy, and your attorneys will need to promptly investigate the case before evidence becomes stale.
