Scientists know that brain development in teenagers is very different than brain structure in adults. Teenagers still have brains that are developing, which can make it harder for them to evaluate the long-term consequences of their actions. It is one reason why teens are not allowed to drink until they are older, since they need the extra time to grow and accumulate experience to ensure they can handle alcohol safely.

Driving alone at night in Homestead or anywhere in Florida comes with some added dangers. Fatigued driving accidents are more common at night, as are drunk driving accidents. Visibility is poor and more wildlife may be on the roads. Driving alone at night can also make you a possible target for potential criminals.

Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to stay safer on the roads:

1) Improve visibility: Make sure you take care of your eyes and have the right lens prescription if you wear glasses on contact lenses. If you wear glasses, consider a no-glare coating so you can see well at night. Adjust the interior and dash light to further prevent glare. If you wear contact lenses, avoid driving at night after a full day of wearing contacts, when they may be dried and uncomfortable. Use headlights and high beams, as needed, to allow other drivers to see you.

When driving in Hollywood and Florida, rear-end shunt collisions and T-bone accidents are not the only things you need to worry about. While you may feel safe inside your car, instances of carjacking, attacks in parking lots, and other criminal activity in and around cars are not unheard of.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
