Unusual causes of car accidents in Florida

3 causes of car accidents in Florida that you might not be aware of

1. Sun glare and visibility issues

2. Wildlife collisions

3. Wet roads and hydroplaning

  • More than 50% of hydroplaning crashes occur during rainfall intensities of 1.5 inch/hour or over.
  • Speeds observed at the time of the hydroplaning-induced crashes show that drivers were traveling at greater than posted speed limits.
  • The rate of hydroplaning crashes increases about 257% from a six-lane to an eight-lane highway, meaning the wider the road, the greater the risk.
