Deadly Crashes in Florida Kill Thousands Every Year
FLORIDA- Wftv.com writes that every year, over 3,000 people are tragically killed in car crashes in Florida. The statistics average out to about eight people dying on Florida roads every day. Some parts of the state have higher numbers of deaths than others, indicating some counties may have more hazardous roads than others.*
While traffic deaths statewide have gone up and down, Orange County’s total number of victims rose by 23 percent between 2015 and 2019. In Volusia County, a similar trend played out with an increase of 35 percent.
The rise in people on the road is leading to a rise in crashes and deaths.
In one incident, a woman who moved from Puerto Rico to Florida was killed in a crash in 2019. The 30-year-old was a mother of two who had moved to provide a better life for her children following Hurricane Maria. She had found a place to live and a job but lost her life in an instant due to traffic violence.
Experts say that the best thing people can do to protect themselves is to use their seatbelts. By buckling up, occupants can increase their chances significantly of surviving what could have been a deadly crash.
