Allstate Insurance Company recently issued its Best Drivers Report, which gauges the likelihood of auto accidents in a given area and the average number of years between accidents for drivers in that area. Allstate ranked Orlando 149th out of 193 metropolitan areas in their report, with first place being the best and safest place to drive in the country and 193rd place the worst and most dangerous. Our city’s poor ranking in the report will come as no surprise to James O. Cunningham and other Orlando personal injury lawyers. They have a great deal of experience representing people injured in accidents involving automobiles and see the effects of automobile accidents on a regular basis.
Orange County officials are planning to install as many as 80 additional red light cameras at dangerous intersections throughout the county over the next two years, but they are holding off on installing them until Florida legislators make a decision about them slated for next spring. Currently, there are ten red light cameras in place in Orange County, which were installed after lawmakers approved the cameras and the $158 fines for running red lights. The use of the cameras was approved in recent years, but a bill in the Florida House last spring proposed eliminating these cameras. The bill did not pass, but opposition to the life-saving cameras remains strong, and Orange County officials want to make sure red light cameras laws will remain legal before investing in their installation.
