Florida Snowbird Season: An Increase in Car Accidents
The state of Florida has the third highest number of automobile accidents in the USA. November and December are the worst months for accidents on Florida roadways. This is partly because many snowbirds and tourists visit Florida during those months.
There is a large population of older Americans who prefer to live in their homes up north while the weather is agreeable, but migrate south to the Sunshine State for the colder months, usually October through April. Between these snowbirds and winter tourists, the amount of traffic on Florida roads during “season” can be overwhelming.
During the holidays, drivers can be even more distracted than usual. They may be busily traveling between events or shopping, trying to remember their lists. If they are snowbirds or winter tourists, they may be unfamiliar with the roadways and likely unfamiliar with where they are headed. There is also the possibility that they are driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, which can be extremely dangerous.
Tips to Avoid Accidents During Snowbird Season
Whether you are driving in Florida during snowbird season or any other time of year, you can remember these tips to help avoid accidents:
- Try to get familiar before driving around an area.
- Avoid night driving if possible.
- Eliminate distractions like noisy passengers and loud music.
- Always be alert to the actions of other drivers around you.
- Allow plenty of distance between yourself and other drivers, especially those who appear to be distracted, confused, or under the influence.
