The good news is that, according to the crash statistics provided in the most recent Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) report, crash fatalities in our state dropped to their lowest rate on record. While that is good news, 2,563 innocent victims still lost their lives in automobile accidents. Many of these deaths could have been prevented if only the other drivers who share Florida’s roads had exercised greater care behind the wheel.

Advising Victims of Car Accidents Since 1977
Far too many people continue to die every day on Florida’s roadways while driving their own cars, or after being struck by automobiles while riding motorcycles, bicycles or simply taking a walk. In 2009, the FLHSMV gathered the following statistics:
- 921 alcohol-related fatal crashes were reported.
- 402 motorcycle fatalities occurred.
- 100 bicyclists lost their lives.
- 482 pedestrians were killed.
Teenage drivers remain the most likely to be involved in an automobile accident. Auto accidents tragically cut short the lives of 153 teen drivers and passengers between the ages of 15 and 19. Twenty-one-year-old drivers under the influence of alcohol accounted for the highest overall crash rate while drivers 23 years of age had the highest rate of fatal accidents. This data is of particular concern for Daytona Beach, which is famous as an annual Spring Break destination for thousands of teenagers and young adults.
