Avoid a Car Accident in Florida

 
Besides using these apps for a safer route, make sure you follow these guidelines to reduce your accident chances.
 
Stay alert
Distracted driving is causing more accidents every day. If you are relying on your phone for navigation, make sure it’s in a readily visible spot so you don’t need to take your eyes off the road.
 
Obey speed limits
Many driving apps show the speed limit, so you’ll always know how fast to travel wherever you drive. The higher the speed in an accident, the greater the damage.
 
Drive respectfully
Aggressive driving and tailgating cause many accidents every day. Slow down and give other drivers a wide berth.
