Common Dangers On Florida Roadways
North Florida and the surrounding areas are a vacation spot for millions of travelers a year. A lot of drivers on the road are unfamiliar with the area. This mixture of local traffic and vacationers with different driving habits sometimes leads to more car accidents.
The majority of motor vehicle collisions could be avoided if vehicle operators drove more responsibly. Drivers can be easily distracted by things such as conversations with passengers, playing with the radio, eating or drinking, and talking on cellphones.
Even if you are a responsible driver and do not give in to distractions, there’s no guarantee that you won’t be involved in a collision due to the fault of another careless driver. Knowing how to drive isn’t enough with so many vehicles on the road. However, being wary of other drivers and knowing how to drive defensively can improve one’s chances of avoiding an auto accident.
