AAA warns of dangers of old headlights

Florida drivers may not think about headlights needing regular inspection and maintenance, but the American Automobile Association says otherwise. Its research shows that old headlights only produce a little more than 20 percent of the light that fully working beams provide. In a press release, AAA recommended using original manufacturer parts as replacements. While aftermarket parts worked at a capacity of 83 to 90 percent, they were less intense overall and also tended to create a glare for other drivers.

Study shows how less sleep leads to car crashes

Florida residents may be aware that a lack of sleep creates a dangerous situation for drivers. However, many motorists fail to change their sleeping habits. A U.S. Department of Transportation survey found that one in three adult drivers in the nation sleep fewer than seven hours (seven to nine hours is the ideal amount). This is crucial because an estimated 7 percent of motor vehicle crashes, or 330,000 crashes a year, are due to drowsy driving.

Teen driving statistics for Teen Driver Safety Week

Teen Driver Safety Week in Florida and across the country aims to spread information about safe driving habits for young drivers. The results of new research on teen driving have been released, and they show that the presence of at least one adult passenger in a vehicle driven by a teen could decrease accident risk.

Enhanced drivers' education boosts risk awareness in teens

According to a new study, taking a supplemental drivers' education program that includes a trip to a hospital could help teens in Florida better understand the consequences of risky driving. However, the study, which was conducted by researchers at Baylor University, was unable to determine if the program caused teens to adopt safer driving habits.

Roundabouts in rural Florida areas can save lives

The intersection of Pine Log Road and Carthage Road in Robeson County is the spot of many serious traffic collisions, including the death of a young college student in 2011. After the fatal incident, the N.C. Department of Transportation investigated the incident and installed a few road signs warning drivers about the intersection. Unfortunately, accidents at the spot did not stop. Rural roads like these in Florida and other states are considered particularly dangerous.
