While car accidents often occur on the roadways in all states yearly, Florida has some of the worst statistics. The Sunshine State is the third-highest state in the nation for motor vehicle mortality. The average number of traffic-related fatalities every year is 2,400.
In fact, Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) estimates that 200,000 car accidents occur in Florida each year. If you find yourself in such a case contact Florin Roebig.
Total Florida Automobile Accidents, Injuries, and Fatalities
The FLHSMV's Crash Dashboard gives the latest information on car accidents in the whole state. The FLHSMV reports that total car accidents in Florida increased last year after two years of decline.
Hopefully, the state will have fewer accidents in 2022 than in 2021. The total number of car accidents statistic that has occurred in the last four years in Florida is as follows:
●2018 - 403,626
●2019 - 401,867
●2020 - 341,399
●2021 - 401,170
●Accidents through to July 2022: 194,632.
2022 Mid-Year Florida Car Accident Data From the FLHSMV
Hit-and-Run Car Accidents
In Florida, there have been 52,791 hit-and-run car incidents so far this year. 11,494 injuries and 119 fatalities have been reported due to these accidents. The number of hit-and-run accidents in Florida yearly typically ranks among the states with the greatest number.
Pedestrian and Bicycle Accidents
Statewide, there were approximately 8,000 car accidents involving cyclists and pedestrians in the first half of 2022. Tragically, almost 450 of these collisions resulted in death. Unfortunately, Florida continually ranks among the states with the highest number of bicycle and pedestrian accidents.
March Was the Most Dangerous Month on Florida’s Roads
Florida ranks among the states with the most traffic fatalities per 100 Million miles traveled. During the year's first half, March was the riskiest month on Florida's roads. Statewide, there were 36,413 auto accidents in March, much more serious than April's second-highest monthly total of 32,861.
The most fatalities in the first half of a year since 2006 occurred between January and June 2022, when there were an estimated 20,175 fatal car accidents. The sudden uptick is the frightening long-term trend in traffic fatalities.
Between mid-2020 and early 2022, there has been a rise in death cases on roads in the seven quarters. According to a recent survey by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, drivers' increasing propensity for dangerous behavior, such as speeding, texting while driving, and drunk driving contributes to the trend.
