In Miami, we love the fact that every holiday season we enjoy great weather and attract people from all over the world to our great city. There is a certain buzz that cannot be ignored as one travels around town. With this buzz is also an increase in the number of cars on the road, also impossible to ignore.
As a personal injury lawyer in this fine city, I also notice an unfortunate increase in accident claims resulting from auto accidents at this time of year. I often question if this is a result of the increased traffic flow on the roads . I then wonder what we can all do to avoid this.
My advice, be aware!! The holidays are busy and many people have a lot to get done in addition to already busy lifestyles. The hustle and bustle creates for an often hectic feeling on the roadways. To stay safe, carefully adhere to all the rules of the road and be mindful of other drivers.
With the holiday season also come holiday parties and festivities. The unfortunate consequence of which are increased drivers under the influence on our roadways. We all hope that each and every driver makes the choice to avoid operating a vehicle after consuming alcohol. We should also keep in mind that we need to keep a careful watch for those who may not. It is even more important at this time of year to be aware of other drivers on the roadways. Also , we urge you to not let colleagues, friends or family drink or drive...ever!! The consequences are just too grim. Remember there are better choices.
