Coral Gables Unsafe Lane Changing Accidents
When drivers make unsafe lane changes, they endanger other motorists. It only takes a few seconds to ensure that a lane change is safe, and when drivers are too distracted or too impatient to take the simple precautions of checking their mirrors and blind spots, they can cause devastating car accidents. Unfortunately, many unsafe lane change accidents occur on Coral Gables and Florida highways and freeways, where speeds are faster, and this can lead to more devastating and even fatal injuries.

- Checking their blind spots
- Signaling or indicating their lane change
- Checking their mirrors
- Checking to make sure that they have enough distance to safely make a lane change
- Leaving enough distance if they are making a lane change in order to pass another vehicle
