Many Florida and Hollywood residents will be traveling in the next week to see family and friends for Thanksgiving. If you’re one of them, make sure you take these steps to stay safe:

1) Plan your route carefully.

Driving around lost can mean frustrations, which can lead to driving mistakes. Encountering bad traffic can also lead to aggressive driving or just upset and avoidable driving errors. Take a look at traffic conditions, roadwork, weather, and any other possible obstructions on your route. Print out alternative routes in case you need them and print out a map or program your route into your GPS so you can get to your destination safely.

Take care of your car.

Before going on an extended road trip, make sure that your car is in good enough condition to handle the drive. Take your car to a trusted mechanic for a thorough look over and take care of any issues before you go. Have your oil changed, fluids topped up, and make sure that your windshield wipers are in good repair. Mechanical failure causes many Hollywood and Florida car crashes; taking good care of your car can help you avoid some of these common causes of collisions.

Unfortunately, motorcyclists face additional safety challenges because their vehicles offer fewer layers of protection than a car, which surrounds passengers. Cars are also sometimes negligent when driving around motorcyclists and take added risks which put motorcyclists in danger.

Traffic lights are an important part of street design and they are created to control traffic flow while preventing motor vehicle collisions. Given accident rates in general and the number of intersection collisions in Hollywood and other cities, however, many experts feel that more can be done to make streets and traffic lights safer. One of those potential solutions is “smart” traffic lights.

Smart virtual traffic lights developed by scientists promise to reduce collisions, red light violations, and congestion. The lights work by allowing cars to communicate with each other and with traffic light systems. If two or more cars are approaching an intersection, the system would make the lights turn green for the car or cars with the right of way and red for everyone else. If there is only one car approaching the intersection, the traffic lights would allow that car to drive right through on a green light.

According to experts at the World Bank and the World Resources Institute (WRI), many people are moving to cities. In fact, half of the world’s population now lives in urban areas, which means that these regions are expanding rapidly with new buildings and roads. It also means more traffic congestion, with cities creating 1.2 million traffic accident fatalities annually.

Many safety experts say that it does not have to be this way and that cities can become safe places with good, sustainable designs. The problem, some critics feel, is that current cities are not always designed for future population growth or even to handle the current population numbers, creating congestion and other problems.

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
