The Dangers Of Driving Against Medical Advice

It is unfortunately common to hear news stories of individuals driving inattentively or recklessly, or driving despite knowing that they are impaired by drugs/alcohol. There is another driving hazard that is less commonly discussed but no less dangerous: driving with a debilitating medical condition.

Car seats need more protection than Florida law

Children are the most precious cargo on America's roads. Parents always observe extra precautions on a grocery run, pickup after practice or road trip with a child on board. Since other drivers cannot be relied upon to be careful, parents have a duty to protect children against car accidents.

Fatigued driving: More prevalent and more dangerous than you think

You may know of the dangers of distracted driving, but you may not know that fatigued driving can be just as dangerous. A tired driver can cause as much harm as an individual who picks up his or her phone while behind the wheel, and it is a serious problem in Florida and across the country.

Car crashes through living room and child's bedroom

In Tampa, a car left the roadway and crashed into a parked vehicle. That second vehicle was sitting right in front of a house, and the accident was so violent that the first car plowed right on into the home, smashing into a living room and a child's bedroom at just before 6 a.m.

Teens and cellphones get a lot of press when looking at distractions behind the wheel. However, as dangerous as it is to use a phone to text a friend while driving, there's another danger that often gets overlooked: having those friends in the car.

Tips for avoiding a rear-end accident

In the vast majority of cases, if another driver rear-ends your car, you are not at fault. Drivers are supposed to keep a safe following distance at all times -- even though many of them don't -- so that they can stop in time to avoid a crash. That being said, there are a few things you can do to keep from being rear-ended.

Are turn signals really that important?

You've been there before: Someone ahead of you on the interstate merges into your lane without using the turn signal. Or the car ahead of you is sitting in the left-hand turn lane without a blinker on. Or you're at a four-way stop and you don't know if that next car is going straight or turning.
