Florida drivers dubious texting and driving law will be impactful

Distracted driving has been an ongoing concern in Florida. Since the state had relatively lenient laws regarding texting and driving, significant pressure was placed on lawmakers to change the way law enforcement went about its duties in stopping drivers who were texting behind the wheel. A new law was signed by the governor to allow drivers to pull vehicles over if the driver was texting. It goes into effect July 1. However, there are various concerns among drivers as to its effectiveness as the law has certain limitations. With that, a distracted driver will continue to present the risk of a car accident with injuries and fatalities.

Being a work-related distracted driver places people in danger

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.

Study: Light rain sparks significant rise in car accidents

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.
