Riding motorcycles is an activity enjoyed by many Floridians. With warm weather, motorcyclists can ride throughout the year in our state. With this, however, comes the risk of tragedy. Although motorcycles make up only about 3% of all registered motor vehicles, they account for about 15% of all reported fatalities in Florida traffic accidents. The consequences of a motorcycle accident in Florida can be devastating for victims and their families as motorcyclists are often injured or killed due to the reckless actions of others.
Our condolences are with the family who lost their loved one in this tragic crash in Hillsborough County.
