A reportable crash happens in Florida every 92 seconds. Many serious and catastrophic crashes across our state take place on highways. Higher speed limits, more congestion, and distracted drivers all contribute to higher rates of accidents and death on highways. Many people feel a false sense of security inside their vehicle and do not appreciate that a car crash when traveling at high speeds will almost certainly result in serious damage.
