Unfortunately, it isn’t rare for pedestrians to be hit by cars or other vehicles in the State of Florida. The beautiful South Florida climate coupled with busy and congested roadways are often a deadly combination for pedestrians.
Far too often, drivers fail to pay attention to road conditions, fail to yield the right of way to pedestrians, roll through right hand turns and crosswalks, and drive too aggressively. This negligent or reckless behavior often leads to serious injury or death of people exercising, heading to work, running errands, or taking a leisurely stroll.
Pedestrian accidents can happen in even the safest cities like Coral Springs and Coconut Creek. In most cases, these accidents are due to driving vehicles recklessly.
