Automobile accidents happen more frequently in Florida than anyone fully realizes – current statistics reveal that there’s a crash every 10 seconds, with close to 5 fatalities reported every hour as a result of those crashes. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that speeding is not only a major contributing factor in vehicle accidents nationwide, but also results in a higher percentage of fatalities when crashes occur at higher than normal speeds. When other dangerous factors – such as fatigue, distracted driving, cellphone use, texting while driving and driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs – are combined with speeding, the results can prove devastating. According to NHTSA estimates, speed-related crashes cost Americans upwards of $40 billion each year. Please use common sense every time you get behind the wheel on South Florida’s roadways; plan wisely and take your time – it’s a much better proposition to arrive a little late than not to arrive at all.
