The Lakeland Car Accident Lawyer Group has announced a new campaign to encourage safe, cautious, and courteous driving by all Florida drivers in the new year. The roads can be the most dangerous place when people try to get to their destination too quickly and sacrifice safety in the process. This type of reckless driving not only puts the driver at risk, but also all other drivers around them. To ensure 2017 is a safe and enjoyable year, the Lakeland Car Accident Lawyer Group is focusing in on specific ways to prevent being rushed and make the roads a safer place for all drivers.
Here are the top tips by the Lakeland Car Accident Lawyer Group for having a safe 2017 on all Florida roads.
1. Plan ahead and leave extra time for getting to one’s destination. By not being rushed, a driver can drive more cautious and attentive, drastically increasing safety for everyone on the Lakeland roads. One of the highest causes of accidents is by drivers being in a hurry and trying to make up time at the sake of safety.
2. Get proper maintenance done on the vehicle. Good brakes and tires can make a difference in whether an accident happens or not. Also, ensure that windshield wipers and headlights are good working condition. During winter, it gets darker earlier than the rest of the year and it is paramount that headlights work for safety of the driver and other vehicles on the road.
3. Do not text and drive. Driving is a dangerous activity and requires full attention. With more and more people having and using smart phones, it is imperative to drive with full awareness outside the vehicle and be ready to make a defensive driving correction if a car veers into the wrong lane.
4. Never drive under the influence. The new year includes lots of drinking, but this does not mean they have to include driving. Always designate a sober driver or use ride sharing or hire a taxi. It is never worth the risk to oneself and others on the roads to drive under the influence of any alcohol or drugs. Be safe in 2017 and make the right choice.
Additionally, there are some specific areas in the Lakeland, Florida, area all drivers should be more aware of and drive more cautiously when they are near. These are some of the most dangerous roads and intersections based on traffic data for 2015. The intersection of Griffin Road and U.S. 98 North is known as one of the most dangerous intersections in Polk County. The intersection of Memorial Boulevard and Massachusetts Avenue, the intersection of the West Edgewood Extension and South Florida Avenue, and last but not least, the Memorial Boulevard and North Florida Avenue intersection. The Lakeland Car Accident Lawyer Group advises all drivers to be particularly cautious when traveling near these proven dangerous intersections. The main reason these intersections are so dangerous and continue to have the highest number of accidents is from drivers running red lights and not paying attention to the roads.
By following these 3 tips for safe driving in 2017, the Lakeland Car Accident Lawyer Group hopes that all drivers will have a safe and happy new year.
