'Do not disturb' feature may prevent distracted driving accidents

Most people in Florida and nationwide have a cellphone. In fact, cellphone usage has become so commonplace and allows users to engage in so many different activities, that some people may wonder how we ever lived without them. Unfortunately, some people choose to use them while behind the wheel of their car. This is incredibly dangerous. If a person's attention is on their cellphone rather than on the task of driving, they could become distracted and fail to react properly while driving.

Mock drunk driving wreck presented to Florida teens

Prom can be the highlight of a teenager's high school experience. It is a long-celebrated tradition that many students in Florida look forward to every year. However, one tradition that some teenagers engage in at prom is underage drinking. One AAA survey reports that of teenage respondents between the ages of 16 to 19, 41 percent stated that on prom night they or their friends planned on drinking or taking drugs.

What are some common causes of commercial vehicle accidents?

No one can deny that semi-trucks are an integral part of the economy in the United States. Businesses rely on truckers to ship goods for sale across the nation. Semi-trucks are a common sight on Florida highways, but, due to their sheer size, any accident involving a semi-truck has the potential to be catastrophic. The following are some common causes of truck accidents.

Victims of hit-and-run crashes in Florida should not lose hope

Accidents unfortunately happen all too often. A person might be safely driving, following all traffic rules, when another driver sideswipes them, T-bones them or rear-ends them. Most people in St. Augustine know that if they are in a car accident, they should stay at the scene of the crash to determine if anyone needs medical help, to exchange insurance information and to wait for police to come, if necessary. Unfortunately, some drivers will not carry out these duties. They will cause a car crash, and then simply flee the scene of the accident, leaving the victims in a devastating situation.

Distracted driving accidents occur despite known danger

Technology is improving at an amazingly rapid rate. Take cellphones, for instance. Over the past 30 years, they have evolved from large, clunky objects that could only make phone calls, to machines that can text, email, take photos, access social media accounts, make purchases and so much more. They are wonderful, but they are distracting. And, while this distraction may not seem like such a big deal if you are safe inside your home, it can be a serious danger if you are trying to drive.
