Will motor vehicle accidents increase with daylight savings time?

In just a few weeks, people across the nation will be setting their clocks ahead to begin Daylight Saving Time. Many people complain that it is bothersome to make the switch and generates fatigue. Some scientists recently released a study that it may also be dangerous. They claim that the clock shift increases the risk of fatal motor vehicle accidents. The state of Florida is considering whether to eliminate DST altogether and studies like this one may encourage lawmakers to pursue the change.

Fatal motor vehicle accident on New Year's Day.

There's never a good time to have a car crash, but it seems especially tragic when it happens on a holiday. The New Year is normally a time that is filled with promise and excitement for the future. Sadly, one Florida family is likely mourning the loss of one of their own after a man died in a recent motor vehicle accident on New Year's Day. 

3 women die in Florida Christmas Eve car accident

Any time of the year is a horrible time to experience a car crash, but when one happens during the winter holidays, it can seem even more upsetting. Families who may have been excited to spend time together may end up mourning the loss of a loved one. This is what some Florida families may are likely going through after three women lost their lives in a car accident on Christmas Eve.

Motorcycle accident claims two lives

Though a lot of the rest of the country is dealing with snow at this time of year, many people in Florida are still enjoying many warm weather activities. For example, many people are still riding their motorcycles, for both recreation and transportation. This means, unfortunately, many of those riders are at risk of getting into a motorcycle accident. Since motorcycle riders don't have as much protection as those people riding in passenger vehicles, they face a higher risk of injury and even fatality. Recently, two people lost their lives after their motorcycle was struck by a vehicle.

Fatality and multiple injuries result of Interstate car acciden

The recent holiday weekend was a happy time for many families here in Florida. Not every family was so lucky, as this time of year can often bring just as much tragedy. One Florida family is likely mourning the loss of one of their own after a car accident took the life of one woman. Authorities say the accident on Interstate 10 here in Florida also resulted in multiple serious injuries.

Motor vehicle accidents are increasing across the state

Populations are booming in the state of Florida, which means there are more vehicles sharing roadways than ever before. Navigating these overcrowded roadways can be a daunting and difficult task for any driver regardless of experience. It's no surprise that motor vehicle accidents are increasing every year across the state. Recently, a tragic crash near Poinciana claimed the lives of a woman and her granddaughter.

Motorcycle accident leaves man in serious condition

Any kind of motor vehicle accident has the potential to cause serious harm to anyone involved. However, there are certain kinds of crashes that are more likely to result in injury or even death. People who ride motorbikes are well aware of these risks, and most of them take precautions to keep themselves safe. Even so, they cannot control the behavior of other drivers. A recent motorcycle accident here in Florida that left the biker seriously injured shows exactly how significant the danger can be.

Car accident leaves 8 people injured

A motor vehicle accident has the potential to cause serious harm to the people involved. However, when the accident involves a semitrailer, the chances that a person could be seriously hurt rise sharply and the amount of damage is often greater than what is typically seen in accidents with regular passenger vehicles. This is evident in a recent trucking accident here in Florida that resulted in injuries to eight people, including one seriously.

Man dies from injuries days after serious car accident

A car crash is nearly always a stressful event. Even a minor fender bender can significantly impact a person's life, especially when injuries occur. A car accident that results in the loss of someone's life has the potential to upend the world of the victim's family. This is likely what one Florida family is experiencing after a man died several days after being injured in a two-vehicle crash.

Fatal Florida motor vehicle accident under investigation

Fatal car crashes often leave behind more questions than answers. The families of the victims may struggle to understand exactly what occurred and whether anything could have prevented the tragedy. They have to rely on the investigative abilities of law enforcement to determine what happened. This may be what one Florida family is enduring after a 29-year-old man lost his life in a motor vehicle accident with his passenger truck and two semitrucks.
