Every day, on average, there are more than 700 traffic crashes on Florida roadways, according to the crash facts report by the Dept. of Highway Safety & Motor Vehicles. About 8 percent of those crashes involve teen drivers.
Drivers between the ages of 15-19 naturally have less experience. But teen drivers also tend to think they are experts at multitasking, which is an incredibly dumb thing to believe while driving.
All across Florida, college students are settling in for another school year – and they bring lots of stuff with them. Hopefully, they have already learned the important lesson of having all that stuff properly insured.There’s nothing quite like lugging box after box of belongings into a new dorm or apartment to remind you about how much you own. But what if something happened to all that stuff? With proper insurance, it could be replaced.
I remember, fondly, my 16-year-old self on the one driving lesson I had with my mother. She let me drive her to the deli to pick up fixings for dad’s lunch. I made a left turn on a green light, directly in front of a car coming through the intersection. Yeah, that other car had the right of way, as I learned from that near miss, yet I thought I owned the road.
