The 2018 Traffic Crash Facts from the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles reveal that drivers between the ages of 21 and 24 were involved in numerous crashes for three years. Yes, teens and other young adults get into auto accidents, but the figures for that specific group really stand out. In 2018, 21- to 24-year-old drivers accounted for 64,848 crashes, and the next closest was for 18- to 20-year-olds with 47,067.
Motor vehicle operators between 21 and 24 led in crashes among teens and young adults in 2017 as well. They were in 66,378 accidents that year. In 2016, it was the same old story, as 67,885 incidents involving 21- to 24-year-old drivers occurred. Perhaps those young motorists need more experience behind the wheel. Then again, maybe they are just more willing to take risks.
Regardless of why those events are happening, Floridians should put their heads on swivels when they are driving around town. They need to utilize defensive and safe driving practices too. With any luck, they will be able to avoid crashes with other drivers. Victims shouldn’t fret if the events are not avoidable. Instead, they should read on to learn how auto accident lawyers can be of assistance.
