Alcohol can disrupt brain functions involving coordination

Summertime is a time when people in Florida get together for celebrations, whether they are an informal event, such as a family barbecue, or a formal event, such as a wedding. When alcohol is served at these events, as is often the case, most people of legal drinking age may not think twice about having a drink or two. However, some people will use these events as an excuse to become intoxicated. This situation is made all the more serious if these intoxicated drivers cause a drunk driving accident that injures or kills another person.

Semi-truck driver killed while aiding car accident victims

There are times in our lives when we must rely on the kindness of others when things go wrong. This is especially true when it comes to driving, as many unexpected events can lead to a car accident. Some accidents are minor, resulting in property damage but no serious injuries. However, other accidents can be severe, resulting in serious injuries or even fatalities. In any case, when other drivers in Florida come to the aid of car accident victims, they should not be harmed themselves in the process. Unfortunately, this does not always happen.

Federal rules aim to prevent truck driver fatigue

As people in Florida head out on their family road trips this summer, they will surely find themselves in the company of semi-trucks on the highways. These massive vehicles take a good deal of training to handle. Moreover, their large size means that due to sheer physics, any accident involving a semi-truck has the potential to be catastrophic. It is important, then, that semi-truck drivers stay as safe as possible while behind the wheel.

Florida tourist dies in hit-and-run accident

Many people flock to Florida's beaches and amusement parks every year on family vacations. These are supposed to be happy times where life-long memories will be made. However, one vacation turned tragic when a 58-year-old tourist in Florida recently lost his life after being involved in a hit-and-run pedestrian accident.

It's only whiplash, how bad can it be?

Have you ever been in a rear-end collision? If you have, even if the crash did not seem very severe, you likely experienced some negative effects on your body. Maybe you still are. Whiplash is, by many people in Florida and elsewhere, not thought to be a big deal. The truth is, though, it can have long-lasting consequences.

Hit-and-run accidents in Florida on the increase since 2012

Being involved in a car crash can be a frightening situation for all involved, especially if it was a serious accident involving severe injuries or fatalities. Drivers in such situations may be tempted to simply leave the scene of the crash, particularly when they were at fault. In fact, the number of hit-and-run crashes in Florida has become a real problem.

How does being intoxicated affect one's driving abilities?

This past Fourth of July meant fireworks and parties as people in St. Augustine and across the United States celebrated our nation's independence. Many of these celebrations, whether they are at the beach or at a block party, included alcohol as part of the festivities. While most people drink responsibly, there are always those who will want to get behind the wheel of a car after drinking too much, which can be a very dangerous activity.
