If your children are under the age of 21 and cannot legally purchase or drink alcohol, it doesn’t mean you don’t have to worry about drunk driving. Underage drunk driving accidents in Homestead, Hollywood, Miami, and other Florida communities, unfortunately, are all too common.

In addition, children may get into a car with older friends or friends’ siblings, who may be under the influence.

This year, Britain’s Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, gave up his driver’s license after getting into a car accident at age 97. When his news made headlines, it started many discussions about aging and driving safety.

While many older drivers continue to drive safely and while as a group seniors have a lower rate of accidents, statistically, than young adults in many studies, there is no doubt that some of the health concerns associated with getting older can negatively impact driving. Decreased mobility due to osteoporosis and other conditions or declining vision due to age can impact the ability to safely drive a car.

Single-car accidents happen in Homestead and other Florida communities. These types of car crashes involve any situation where no other vehicle or pedestrian is involved.

If you crash into a solid barrier at a high speed or even go into a ditch, you could suffer from significant impact or a rollover.

Car accidents involving multiple cars increase your chance of injury, especially if the crash is a pileup or chain reaction collision in Homestead or your community. When you have multiple points of impact, you could be injured at any impact, meaning there are multiple risks.
