America has an automobile culture. We love our cars. We virtually live in our cars. People eat, apply makeup, send text messages and , yes even drink alcohol, all while driving down the road. These negligent driving behaviors persist regardless of weather or traffic conditions. Perhaps, then, it’s not surprising that we have tens of thousands of automobile accidents in the state of Florida each year, And , although an accident takes only seconds to occur, its effects may last a lifetime.
