Roundabouts are designed to reduce traffic congestion and make our roads safer. Florida has adopted them widely, so there are about 300 roundabouts on Florida roads and 20 on highways across the state. Unlike intersections, roundabouts don’t use road signs and full stops.

It is estimated that speeding contributes to about a third of all traffic accident deaths. Speeding can involve a driver exceeding the posted speed limit or it can mean a driver going the posted speed limit but too fast for road conditions.

Speeding is dangerous because it may not leave a driver with enough time to respond to an unexpected event. It can also cause drivers to lose control of their car and cause a traffic crash. In the event of an accident, speed can make a collision higher impact and more serious. The car can leave the road due to the force of the impact, can rollover, and can crash into multiple cars or objects before coming to a full stop.

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
