Each year, Florida has over 395,000 accidents. In many cases, these accidents are caused by an aggressive driver. In fact, Florida comes in at number eight on the list of aggressive drivers. The Florida Highway Patrol proposed the Ticketing Aggressive Cars and Trucks program in 2014. This program was recently re-launched.
Studies have shown that driver error plays a role in 88 percent of the accidents involving large trucks. Only 12 percent of these accidents are due to poor road conditions. The Highway Patrol stated that they will be ticketing people who are caught changing lanes when it is unsafe and following too closely. People will also get a ticket if they speed.
Thousands of people are involved in an accident that is caused by an aggressive driver. Many people welcome the Highway Patrol’s campaign. They believe that this campaign will cut the number of accidents in the long run. This program will only last for two weeks. However, they believe that the campaign and tickets will have a long-term effect on people.
South Florida has some of the most dangerous roads in the country. It is already hard enough for drivers to safely get to their destination. That is why the TACT campaign is so important. It can help decrease a person’s chance of being involved in an accident.
In 2016, 668,699 people were involved in a car accident. Many of these people were seriously-injured as the result of a car accident. Back, facial, head and back injuries were some of the most common injuries. A car accident does not just affect a person physically. Many people suffer psychological problems as the result of the emotions and shock.
There was a study done that showed that 9.6 percent of people who had a musculoskeletal injury also experienced psychological problems. Many people do not know what steps they should take if they have been involved in an accident. Their emotions can make it even more difficult for people to make the right decision.
The whole purpose of the TACT campaign is to reduce accidents. This will help save many lives. If you find yourself in an accident, then it is important to seek professional help. You do not want to deal with this on your own. You will need to get the help of an attorney. They can guide you on what you need to do next. You can also get compensated for your injuries.
