Miami Gardens Distracted Driving

Distracted driving has been proven to cause serious traffic accidents in Miami Gardens, in Florida, and across the country. Studies have shown that distracted drivers remove their eyes from the road for the equivalent of a football field, even if they are just checking something for a few seconds. In addition, distracted drivers have slower response times and often make mistakes. What is perhaps most terrifying is that distracted drivers often miss important cues and important information on the road – such as road signs, pedestrians, and other information -- that they need in order to avoid a collision.

Distracted Truck Drivers Cause Fatal Accidents

Truck drivers are required by law to put their entire focus on the road and are specially trained to not drive distracted. Despite this, truck accidents occur every day due to distracted driving. There are many reasons why truck drivers may be distracted. Since they spend long hours on the road, some truck drivers may be tempted to daydream or to check messages on their phones rather than focusing on the drive. When truck drivers are negligent, the results can be deadly, since the large size and force of commercial vehicle can cause devastating injuries and fatalities on the road. Each year, truck accidents in Miami Gardens and across the country occur because commercial truck drivers drive distracted.

Distracted Driving Can Occur at Any Time

It is not just truck drivers who are responsible. Anyone who operates a vehicle or shares the roads in Miami Gardens needs to stay focused on driving because any distraction can cause a serious collision. When motorcyclists are distracted, for example, they can easily cause a motorcycle accident. Pedestrians and bicyclists, too, can cause a crash if they are not paying attention. Anyone who is distracted when sharing the road can cause a serious traffic accident that leads to:

  • Burns
  • Fractures
  • Whiplash and soft tissue injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Fatalities
  • Head injuries
  • Amputations
  • Disfigurement
  • Internal bleeding and other internal injuries
