Motorcycle Accident FAQs
Drivers uphold a duty when driving appropriately and following the rules of the road. Driving an automobile is a privilege, not a right. Each driver has a legal duty to their passengers as well as fellow drivers on the road to operate their vehicle in a safe manner. When a driver fails to uphold this duty they are deemed to have committed automobile negligence.
According to Florida Statute 316. 1925:
Any person operating a vehicle upon the streets or highways within the state shall drive the same in a careful and prudent manner, having regard for the width, grade, curves, corners, traffic, and all other attendant circumstances, so as not to endanger the life, limb, or property of any person. Failure to drive in such manner shall constitute careless driving and a violation of this section.
Other examples of driver negligence include tailgating, failure to yield the right of way, failure to obey a traffic signal and other similar violations. Any act of driving that endangers fellow drivers could be a form of driver negligence.
