There could soon be a ban on distracted driving in Florida

In Florida, distracted driving is a serious safety concern. This issue is the cause for many accidents throughout the state, causing serious and fatal injuries to many innocent motorists. Despite the well-known dangers of texting behind the wheel, there is no law yet in place banning this behavior. However, this could change soon with a newly proposed law.

Staying focused on safety could help motorcyclists when traveling

For many Florida residents, perhaps yourself included, motorcycle riding is a way of life. You may have made many trips with friends or family while riding your motorcycle and immensely enjoy the time you spend traveling on the road. Though motorcycle riding can act as a fun and bonding experience, it can also pose many hazards to you and other motorcyclists due to the lack of protection.

A burned-out truck driver becomes a risk on the road

Nearly everyone experiences a burnout at work. You may know how it feels to go through your workday on autopilot just waiting for it to end. Doing the same thing day in and day out gets monotonous and even annoying. You may take a vacation day or two in order to recharge so that you can get back to it with a better attitude. At least that is the hope, right?

Would you be willing to share a house with your former spouse?

For Florida parents like yourself, one of the highest priorities in divorce is making sure the children's best interests remain a central focus of all proceedings, especially those involving custody, support and visitation issues. When you discussed your divorce plans with your kids, you assured them first, that it wasn't their fault and next, that you would be there to support them as you all learn to adapt to a new lifestyle.

Understanding the basics of commercial vehicle accidents

An accident with a large, heavy vehicle can leave the occupants of a smaller vehicle with serious injuries. Commercial vehicle accidents can result in serious injuries and significant damage to personal property, and victims are often left wondering how they can move forward after such a traumatic event.

Are you ready to have a safe bike ride?

Going out for bicycle rides may be an activity you do on a daily basis or one you only partake in occasionally. Any time you go out, you may appreciate the benefits that biking has to offer, such as the ability to get to your destination without using much gas or the chance to get exercise and fresh air. Though bicycling can be an enjoyable activity, it can also come with serious risks if you ride on or near roadways.
