Drunk / Distracted Driving Accidents Archives

With whom are people texting and driving?

When one thinks of a distracted driver, some residents of St. Augustine, Florida, may have in their heads the image of a busy professional thoughtlessly taking text messages and emails that are work-related while they are driving. Others might envision a younger driver texting his or her social acquaintances and peers.

Parents admit to texting and driving, study says

Most parents in Florida want to do whatever it takes to keep their children safe while driving. They use car seats and seat belts to keep their children safe in the event of a car accident. However, sometimes parents' own driving habits put not only their children at risk, but also everyone else on the road.

Drunk driving incidents decreasing in the Miami-Dade area

South Florida is a popular place for tourists and locals alike to have a good time. Whether it is at the beach, a night out on the town, or at a party, many people will raise a glass and toast to good friends and good times. However, according to a recent report, more people in the Miami-Dade area are finding a responsible way to get home when too much drinking has led to intoxication.

Intoxicated drivers should be held accountable in a crash

Summer fun means different things to different people. For some people, it means taking a road trip or going camping. To others, it is simply spending the day at the beach or pool. Whatever the occasion, people in Florida will often toast to summer with a drink or two. However, when one drink becomes two and then three or more, a person can easily become drunk. Intoxicated people do not always make responsible decisions, and one of the worst decisions they can make is to try to drive while drunk.

Drunk driver strikes St. Augustine pedestrian

Most people understand that it is dangerous to drive under the influence. Unfortunately, despite all the public initiatives and warnings, there will still be people in Florida who engage in drunk driving. They may not think they are intoxicated, or even worse, they may think they are a better driver when drunk. In either case, if they cause a drunk driving accident, they could seriously injure other individuals.

Can in-car technology reduce distracted driving accidents?

Technology has been advancing at a rapid rate. Not only have smartphones given people in Florida the ability to do so much more than make a simple phone call, but new cars themselves are also being equipped with technology that allows a driver to complete a variety of tasks that they'd normally do through their cellphones by using a touch screen on the car itself. This technology is touted as a safer option than using a cellphone while behind the wheel. However, does this technology really decrease distracted driving?

Even a mere buzz could lead to a drunk driving accident

Most people in Florida do not think much about having a drink or two at a party or happy hour. It may seem like having a beer, glass of wine or cocktail is a good way to relax, socialize or enjoy a good meal. Some may see no danger in driving after only having a couple drinks, especially if they don't think they are intoxicated. However, even having a mere buzz could impact one's driving ability.
