Drivers in Florida and across the U.S. undoubtedly know the risks of being a distracted driver. Because a failure to pay attention to the road places people in jeopardy, there are campaigns and new laws being proposed to dissuade drivers from texting and driving and using their devices while behind the wheel. Unfortunately, people continue to drive distracted. One of the most common reasons given is that the call or text was work-related and important.
Floridians are used to frequent bouts of rain. They will also be likely to understand the dangers of driving when it is raining. Heavy rain can make roadways slick and people might not take the caution they should. This can result in auto accidents with injuries and fatalities. Some might be under the impression that light rain carries less risk than heavy rain. However, as new research from the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society shows, even light rain substantially raises the risk for an accident. Considering this is vital to remain safe on the road. The statistics and evidence can also be an important part of a legal filing for compensation after an accident.
