Construction areas can be especially hazardous in Homestead when it comes to accidents. Work sites often mean unexpected conditions and a combination of work vehicles, cars, and pedestrians on the road. Traffic may be slowed or stopped, leading to frustration and even collisions. In addition, the road itself may have hazards. The road area may be unpaved or lanes may be closed, forcing you to drive in ways you may not be used to.

All groups of drivers may have some risk factors which can put them at risk of a car accident. For young drivers, however, peer pressure and less driving experience, driving can be especially dangerous. Studies have found younger drivers may be more likely to engage in risky behaviors such as hood surfing, drag racing, and other dangerous risks. If you have a teen or young driver in your home and want to reduce their risk of being in a Hollywood or Florida car accident, you need to be aware of the dangers.

Drag Racing

Drag racing has been around since the 1920s and for many years was popularized in movies, shows, and music videos, which has given young drivers the idea to try it. Races are often held late at night or early in the morning in remoter areas and because of the speed involved, serious injuries can occur.

Truck accidents in Hollywood and across South Florida are a key concern for truck drivers who work long hours to get cargo to businesses and customers. Truck drivers have a high risk of on-the-job injuries and of traffic accidents because they spend so much time on the road. Even though they have more training than passenger car drivers, inclement weather, grueling schedules, human error, and the mistakes of other drivers put them at risk of injuries.

Truckers have made big changes over the years to reduce the risk of truck accidents. They have advocated for better and safer working conditions and changes to the industry to make the job safer. They have also fought back against lax training requirements.

Cars are designed for adults of all sizes to drive, but there’s no denying that very tall and short drivers alike face challenges when it comes to driving. Tall drivers may feel cramped in a car or may have a hard time having enough clearance to drive properly. For shorter drivers, the danger may come down to visibility and being able to see correctly in a low seat. In addition, air bags and even seat belts can pose a danger for shorter drivers in the event of a traffic collision in Hollywood or their communities. In some cases, these safety devices can even cause serious injury.

In Hollywood and across South Florida, car accidents are an obvious and frequent cause of injury. Children who are in a car injured in a car collision can suffer from many types of serious and life-threatening injuries. However, a vehicle doesn’t have to be on the road for it to pose serious risks to a child.

Some of the less known risks to kids in vehicles include:

Car accidents involving cars on the road injure children, but some child car injuries in Hollywood are caused by vehicles accidentally set in motion. When children are left alone in a car, they tend to explore and can manage to start the vehicle and cause it to roll forward or backward. If the car is parked on a hill or a slope, the vehicle can roll towards another vehicle, towards traffic, or towards a tree or solid object. A vehicle set in motion with child passengers can cause devastating head injuries, fractures, and other serious injuries.

Most cars made after 2006 have a BTSI (brake transmission shift interlock system), which means the driver has to engage the brake to get the car out of park. This can help prevent vehicles accidentally set in motion, but children can still accidentally set a car in motion. Older cars do not have BTSI and are a risk.

It is important that only qualified and licensed drivers over the age of 16 are allowed to operate a motor vehicle. Unfortunately, some children drive before they are 16 and before they have gotten the proper training and licensing. This puts not only them but others around them in danger as these drivers do not have the skills to drive safely and may not know how to execute turns, stops or other moves safely. They may also be more prone to excessive speeds or dangerous maneuvers when compared with licensed drivers.

There are many reasons why teenagers who are under the age of 16 decide to drive without a license. In some cases, they are passionate about video games or movies which show driving and are eager to try it for themselves. In other cases, older friends encourage them to drive in isolated areas just to try out this form of freedom. Sometimes, peer pressure contributes to underage driving. In all cases, it is a serious risk. Underage driving can mean a visit from the police and can land your child in trouble. Worse, your child can be seriously injured or even fatally injured in a car crash caused by an inexperienced driver. You need to be concerned not only with your own child getting behind the wheel, but with your child being in a car with an underage driver.
