Accidents in Miami
With all of the tourists and busy commuting locals in Miami and surrounding areas, accidents involving motor vehicles have become all too common. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles annual report on Florida Traffic Crash Statistics showed an average of 646 car crashes each day in the state – equal to 27 Florida motor vehicle accidents every hour of every day. Even worse, well over half of the car crashes in the state resulted in personal injury or fatality to those involved.
Miami car accidents may occur as the result of many circumstances, but in most instances they are the unacceptable result of poor decision making on the part of one or more drivers. Drunk drivers, or those under the influence of drugs, are most often the cause of car crashes resulting in personal injury or fatality. Other accidents are caused by reckless or negligent driving, including:
- Failure to yield the right-of-way
- Failure to stay in the proper lane
- Falling asleep behind the wheel
- Texting or other electronic use while driving
- Road Rage
