Reason for Positivity? Some Studies Indicate Florida Drivers Are Improving

There is a long history of Florida drivers being considered the worst in the nation, but a recent study indicates some areas of improvement.

Mountain View rated Florida as the ninth-safest state for drivers, and Florida was the 11th-safest state for drivers in a study put together by QuoteWizard. This latter study also placed Orlando and Miami on its list of the 75 safest cities for drivers, as they had low rates of drunk driving and speeding.

Meanwhile, an Allstate Insurance study ranked Cape Coral as having the safest roads in Florida and the eighth-safest in the nation.

All studies take different metrics into account

Of course, when considering the merits of these studies, it’s also important to look at the metrics each study uses to arrive at its rankings. Some states only focus on specific aspects of driving safety, such as drunk driving, hit-and-run crashes, pedestrian accidents or total traffic deaths.

One will find that Florida ranks very differently across many of these different factors. The state still ranks quite high nationally in terms of the most traffic fatalities. So, while it is certainly nice to hear positive news about Florida’s roadway safety, we must also keep those rankings in context and understand that there are other studies showing that Florida is currently struggling in this area.

If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident due to the actions of a negligent driver, speak with a skilled Sarasota personal injury lawyer at Goldman, Babboni, Fernandez, Murphy & Walsh today.
