Fatal car accidents take place, on average, every three hours in Florida. Those who ride motorcycles, mopeds, scooters, and other two-wheeled vehicles face a grave risk of death or serious bodily injury when they are involved in crashes with larger vehicles. While every precaution should be taken to avoid a crash, not all collisions can be prevented, and a single negligent act can have irreversible consequences.
