Sadly, the majority of the car wrecks that happen in Florida are able to be prevented and are caused by driver negligence. Driver negligence comes in numerous forms, however, currently, the most commonly seen forms of driver negligence in the United States include speeding, driver intoxication, distraction, and fatigue.
