Brake safety violations sideline nearly 2,000 trucks

Many Florida motorists know just how dangerous it can be sharing the road with large commercial trucks. On May 3, a bit fewer than 2,000 trucks in North America were taken out of service on an unannounced Brake Safety Day conducted by the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance.

Improving economy leads to more traffic deaths

Florida motorists may be surprised to learn that the improving economy is causing more Americans to die in crashes involving late-model vehicles, according to a report by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The organization notes that deaths are increasing despite continued improvements in vehicle safety design.

July 4 is a deadly day for drivers

Driving in Florida can be hazardous at any time of the year, but the roads of the Sunshine State can be especially perilous during the summer months. Car accident fatalities soar during holiday weekends when the nation's roads are packed with vacationers and revelers, and government data suggests that human error plays a role in most of these deaths. More road users are killed on July 4 than on any other day of the year according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, and claims analysis performed by Travelers reveals that more crashes take place on the first four days of July than during either the Memorial Day or Labor Day weekends.
