Florida Vehicle Collisions

A large percentage of these accidents can be attributed to driver negligence. For instance, approximately 300,000 speeding tickets are issued per year in the state of Florida. Throughout the United States, more than 11,000 people lose their lives in car wrecks caused by speeding drivers each year. Speeding is one of the most commonly seen types of driver negligence in the country, injuring and taking the lives of thousands of people per year.
