“They explained to me everything about my accident and what they were going to do – point by point what was going on with my body, and said they would do everything they can for me to feel back to normal.”
For South Florida residents, Spring Break means out-of-town drivers causing hazardous driving conditions. Often these young drivers, who do not know the area near their favorite beach destinations, behave recklessly or drive while impaired, which results in traffic violations and accidents.
In fact, Spring Break is one of the most traveled times of the year, following Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve. Spring Break 2022 dates begin February 15 and go through March 31, with the peak landing in mid-March. Each year during Spring Break, car accident numbers rise with an increase in the number of impaired drivers on the road resulting in increased injuries and fatalities.
Here, the Accident Recovery Team at County Line Chiropractic Medical & Rehab Centers offers you these tips on how to stay safe during Spring Break 2022.
To keep spring breakers and South Florida residents safe, Miami Beach officials have implemented new rules. These rules include:
2020 saw 38,680 deaths on US roadways, the most since 2007, even though fewer miles were driven due to pandemic precautions. One theory about the reason behind the increase was stressed-out people releasing their anxieties on wide-open roads.
However, the trend does not seem to have reversed as restrictions were lifted last year and more people have hit the roads again. While total numbers for 2021 have not been released yet, an estimated 31,720 people died in the first 9 months of the year, which would be the highest number of fatalities during the first nine months of any year since 2006.
Experts suggest that feelings of loneliness, isolation, and depression have made drivers more likely to drink or use drugs, speed, or leave their seat belts unbuckled.
What does this mean for you? Take a look at your own driving habits and make sure you haven’t picked up any bad habits since the start of the pandemic. Beyond that, you should pay more attention than ever to the other drivers around you. Always be aware of your surroundings and be prepared to stop or swerve to avoid reckless driving.
Impaired, in the realm of driving, most often refers to drivers who are operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs. It is also used to describe a driver who is having difficulty driving due to aggression, confusion, drowsiness, distractions in or outside the vehicle, talking or texting on a mobile device, or other factors.
Staying alert for impaired drivers can lower your risk of being involved in an accident by allowing you to keep your distance once the impaired driver is observed.
Here are some factors to look for when identifying an impaired driver:
If you notice what appears to be an impaired driver, you should take the following precautions:
When traveling, whether in your community or on vacation, always buckle up for safety. Remember that children under the age of 12 should always be in the backseat, secured safely in a child safety seat or with a seatbelt. Always avoid impaired or distracted driving and check weather conditions in your area.
Here are some additional defensive driving skills that may help you avoid getting into an accident:
