Car Crashes Hit Close to Home
According to a report generated by the Partners for Child Passenger Safety, more than 80% of the 557,000 crashes they examined occurred 20 minutes or less from the person’s home. This report reminds us that motor vehicles crashes often happen under common and familiar conditions so you must always be alert on the roads.
Additional information generated by this report include the following:
- Nearly three-quarters of all crashes happened between 10:00 am and 8:00 pm.
- More than half of the crashes occurred at speeds less than 45 mph.
- Only 35% of crashes took place at an intersection.
Whether close to home or far away, car crashes happen too often. More than 500,000 people are involved in traffic crashes each year in Florida. I have represented some of these people for over 10 years. If you have questions following a car crash, please contact me immediately so we can discuss your rights and responsibilities.
