Florida man loses his life in five-vehicle crash on I-95

It may be almost impossible these days to avoid driving on the interstate, and, in fact, it is an everyday occurrence for many in the Sunshine State. However, driving on the interstate has its risks. For example, a five-vehicle accident on Interstate 95 has led to the death of a Florida man.

Keep these DUI facts in mind if a police officer pulls you over

Are you a social drinker, meaning you typically only consume alcohol on occasion, when attending social events? Perhaps you reserve your drinking habits for a more private setting, such as a chaise lounge in your own backyard. Maybe you're one of many people in Florida who completely abstain from alcohol at all times. In either of these three settings, do you know if you were to get behind the wheel to drive, you may wind up facing DUI charges?

Could lowering the legal limit prevent drunk driving accidents?

It may seem like alcohol is more prevalent than ever these days. Not only are people in Florida and across the nation drinking alcohol at home, at restaurants and at bars, but advertisements for alcohol make drinking seem like a fun and light-hearted activity. This, unfortunately, means that some people are taking things too far and driving under the influence of alcohol.

Determining fault after a tour bus accident

Tourism is a mainstay of Florida's economy. Whether going to an amusement park, the beach, the everglades or any other destination in the state, one may choose a tour bus as their mode of transportation. In general, tour buses are a good way for people to travel. However, that doesn't mean that such journeys are always safe. Just like any other type of vehicle, accidents involving tour buses can occur.

Help is available to Floridians involved in semi-truck accidents

No one can deny that semi-trucks are an essential part of commerce in the United States. Because of semi-trucks, oranges grown in sunny Florida can reach people in snowy Maine or any other state in the nation. These large vehicles are capable of transporting goods anywhere in the continental U.S., which, in turn, can help build a strong economy. And, for these reasons, semi-trucks are a familiar sight on our nation's streets and highways.

Dangerous I-95 ramp needs improvements

Drivers need to take caution when entering or exiting the interstate, but it is important that our interstates are designed in a way that allows for safe driving. Described by many as "confusing," since 2011, one particular off-ramp on Interstate 95 in Florida has seen over three dozen collisions. In response to this, the speed limit on that ramp was lowered. However, the problem persists.

What duties do Florida motorists have if involved in a car crash?

Whether they are driving cross country on a vacation road trip or merely commuting to and from work, most people in Florida do not expect that today will be the day they are involved in an auto accident. Unfortunately, no one is immune from the fact that some drivers will fail to uphold their duty of care. Whether it is due to speeding, a failure to yield or running a red light, auto accidents happen to people in the St. Augustine area every day.

Pedestrian accidents can lead to severe injuries or fatalities

People in St. Augustine certainly appreciate the mild winters in the state. Whether they are "snow birds" or whether they reside in Florida year-round, while people in the northern states are shoveling snow and dealing with frigid temperatures, Floridians are enjoying the weather that allows them to ride their bikes, go swimming or even take a walk.

After a DUI, will you have to get an ignition interlock device?

A drunk driving conviction could result in various penalties that could affect many areas of your life. From your personal freedom to your reputation, a DUI can negatively impact your future. It is always worthwhile to defend yourself against any type of drunk driving charge, even if it is your first offense.
