In 2013, there were more than 420,000 criminal traffic citations on the state of Florida’s roads, according to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. Incidents that fall under this category of infringement typically include driving under the influence, reckless or negligent driving, fleeing, or racing on a highway. Non-criminal moving citations in the state, for the same period, total more than 2.2 million. These typically include minor speeding, traffic light violations and stop sign violations.
It is obvious, therefore, that there are a significant number of incidents on the state’s roads each day, and as recent stories in the news highlight, these figures are particularly concerning for pedestrians.
