Florida Car Wrecks
A car accident is reported in Florida over 1,000 times per day. On average, every year, the state sees more than 400,000 vehicle collisions that injure over 150,000 people and end the lives of around 3,000. Throughout the entire country, millions of vehicle collisions are reported that injure millions of people and take the lives of tens of thousands. Car wrecks have become a serious problem and a leading cause of serious injuries and death in the United States.
Specifically in the past ten years, driver distraction has become a serious issue in the country. Drivers who choose to drive while looking at their phones have become more common on our roadways. This is an extremely dangerous and selfish act and puts everyone on the road at serious risk for severe injuries or even death. Looking at your phone can wait, and is not worth risking your life or the lives of those around you.
