The hope is that by raising awareness of the risks drivers face in Florida, and on the rest of our nation’s roads, fewer mistakes leading to injuries and deaths will occur.

Experienced and Aggressive Clermont Automobile Accident Lawyer
The following is a list of the five most common causes of car accidents, according to recent NHTSA reports:
- Driving while distracted
This includes rubbernecking to look at a prior accident, staring at the scenery and fiddling with other items.
- Driver fatigue
This is especially dangerous when driving at night.
- Driving under the influence of alcohol
The risk of encountering these drivers goes up on weekends.
This decreases driver response time needed to avoid an accident and worsens effects of crash.
- Driving aggressively
This includes tailgating, road rage behaviors and failure to yield when necessary.
As you can see, each of these risks is avoidable by a careful driver. For example, pull over before answering if you get a call on your cell phone. If you are so tired you cannot pay attention, take a break at a rest stop. Most obviously, if you are going out drinking, make sure you give your keys to a friend who volunteers beforehand to drive and not imbibe. Leave yourself extra time to get to the airport or wherever, so that you do not need to speed. Finally, control your temper when you are behind the wheel by taking slow, deep breaths and avoiding other aggressive drivers as much as possible.
