Aggressive Driving Increasing In South Florida!

If it seems like it’s taken longer to drive anywhere these days, it’s not your imagination. The population increase in South Florida is monumental, and the existing roadway structure is limited in its ability to cope with this growth. The congestion continues to intensify, and the resulting delays in travel time can result in aggressive behavior by drivers “trying to get there faster.” While aggressive driving is easily recognizable when we see it, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) clearly defines it as occurring when “an individual commits a combination of moving traffic offenses so as to endanger other… Read More →

Have You Been Injured In A Boating Accident?

I’ve Only Had A Couple Of Drinks, No Problem Driving. Wrong!

In legal terms, a blood alcohol level of 0.08% or more is considered the qualifier for being charged with drunk driving, but many other physiological factors come into play regarding the effects of alcohol in the bloodstream. A study conducted at the University of California San Diego reported that driving with much smaller levels of alcohol in the blood could not only increase the risk of vehicular accidents, but also affect their severity. The study revealed that people who are driving with a blood alcohol level as little as 0.01% in their system face a higher risk of being involved… Read More →

Have You Suffered A Collision With A Truck?

Cars usually get the worst end of the bargain when involved in a crash with a truck. A loaded large truck takes up to 20-50% more road space to stop when compared to cars, and this percentage is even higher on wet or slippery roads. And if the brakes of the truck are poorly maintained, things get even worse. Available statistics show that trucks, 18-wheelers, tractor-trailers and similar large vehicles cause auto accidents resulting in a very large number of wrongful deaths and severe injury cases. While the bigger vehicle offers more protection to its driver, an automobile driver has… Read More →
