Florida Automobile Accidents
On average, there are more than 6 million car collisions annually in the U.S. More than 3 million of those people get injured in those auto accidents, of which more than 2 million of these injuries are permanent. There are over 40,000 deaths due to car wrecks every year. About 40% of fatalities occur due to a drunk driver, 30% can be attributed to driving above the speed limits and 33% or more, because of reckless driving that causes the car to go off the road and result in a wreck.
North Florida and the surrounding areas (Panama City and Destin) are a vacation spot for more than millions of travelers a year. Even with millions of vacationers arriving by air, that’s a lot of drivers on the road that are unfamiliar with the area. This mixture of local traffic and vacationers with different driving habits sometimes leads to more car accidents.
