Be Prepared For Anything While Driving In South Florida – Including Accidents!

While no one can anticipate being involved in a car crash, accidents do happen, so it is a good idea to always be prepared for such an eventuality. Close to a quarter-million traffic accidents occur in the State of Florida each and every year for a variety of reasons – driver distractions, driver fatigue, excessive speeding, erratic driving patterns, road construction and drunk driving. There are some simple rules to keep in mind to be prepared. Write them down and keep them in your glove compartment; when an accident happens, people may become disoriented and forget what to do.

  1. Do not leave the scene of the accident
  2. Make sure your vehicle is moved so it does not block traffic
  3. Call 911 to report the accident
  4. Take witnesses’ names and addresses
  5. Take photos of all vehicles involved
  6. Report the accident to your insurance company
  7. Be careful what you say to the other driver(s), as it could be used against you in legal proceedings
  8. If your car is not drivable, request roadside assistance (it is now available in most carmaker plans, or contact the FDOT’s Road Ranger assistance service at *347)
  9. Make sure to see a doctor as soon as possible, even if you only have minor aches and pains and don’t believe you’ve been seriously injured
