Driving should be kept to a minimum while quarantining and social distancing to protect against coronavirus. If you do go out, you’ve likely noticed that the roads have significantly less traffic than normal. The emptier roads mean that drivers have become more aggressive on the Florida roads.
According to a Click Orlando article, the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) dealt with more than six crashes within a 24-hour period that resulted in a fatality. Furthermore, the article also talks about officers noticing drivers driving well beyond the speed limit. Drivers may be under the false assumption that because of quarantining and the various shutdowns, the laws are not being enforced as usual. This is clearly false.
Reckless drivers should be aware that FHP and local law enforcement agencies are still patrolling the roads and keeping an eye out for aggressive driving. Remember to limit your outings only to essentials such as going shopping for groceries or commuting to and from your job.
