For many years now, Interstate 4 in the Orlando/Central Florida area has been considered one of the most dangerous highways in the nation. Even when you are a safe driver it can be difficult drive, so imagine someone engaging in reckless driving on I4!
Never underestimate the importance of having a strong legal defense team by your side. Imagine being part of a horrific car accident that resulted in a death. Now imagine that you weren't the driver who caused it, yet you still have to deal with the consequences. Thanks to evidence and a solid defense attorney, the driver of a Toyota Solara that crashed into a day care center back on April 9th, will not face any charges. The man's car was hit by an out of control SUV, which sent the Toyota crashing into the day care center.
When we think of car accidents we think of damage done to the cars, swapping insurance info, etc. But what about criminal charges for a car crash?
You'd be surprised at what is considered to be "reckless driving" in the state of Florida. Your average citizen might believe that this is just a civil offense. Think again! Reckless driving is a criminal charge. Getting caught speed is usually the reason why drivers are charged with reckless driving. Other ways to get busted include weaving across lanes, cutting off another driver without using a signal and driving so aggressively that you may possibly cause an accident. Reckless driving tickets may also be issued to other violations like speeding or running a red light. What about texting or falling asleep at the wheel? That usually follows under "careless driving".
When you hear the term "reckless driving" it conjures up images of people driving their cars without much concern for their surroundings. It can be much more detailed than that. A Florida lawmaker recognizes this now.
Movies like Fast & Furious and Need For Speed make it look so cool.
Car accidents leave you with a queasy feeling in your stomach. It's a nightmare of figuring out who is at fault, exchanging insurance info, etc.
