Traffic fatalities in Florida jumped from 2014 to 2015

Fatal motor vehicle accidents are obviously devastating events that turn families upside down and leave many people suffering emotionally and physically. These crashes happen surprisingly often, and today we want to look at some of the data that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has on these accidents in the state of Florida.

Older drivers: remaining alert about driving capabilities

Many readers, perhaps including some in Florida, say aging is for the birds. Common etymology associated with this phrase typically means that those people consider the topic at hand as trivial, worthless or something undesired. Thus, to say aging is for the birds means it's not really something to look forward to in life. Others, however, believe that people are more like fine wines and just keep getting better with age. Regardless which opinion you hold, there are definitely some factors of aging that pose various types of challenges to most people.

Falls: The most significant safety threat on construction sites

Florida construction workers face certain risks and challenges every time they show up at work. One of the most significant threats to the safety of these men and women comes from the threat of a fall. Falls are the leading cause of fatalities in the construction industry, but fortunately, there are ways to decrease the chance of these types of accidents and make job sites safer.

Navigating Florida intersections can be life or death situation

When you're behind the wheel and approaching a Florida intersection, do you ever get worried that there might be an accident? Have you ever been in a situation where you came to a four-way stop sign and it was your turn to go, but another car blew right through the stop sign leading across your path? Then, you understand how highly dangerous intersections can be.

The many forms of distracted driving

Distracted driving is a problem across the country, and Florida is no exception. Any time a driver allows his or her attention to move to something other than the task of driving safely, it is a threat to the well-being of everyone else on the road. While there are a few different types of distracted driving, they are all dangerous.
