Whether you're a local resident, a tourist or a business person driving on the roads in the greater Orlando area, you know from firsthand experience how heavily congested the local roads are on a daily basis. Congested roads lead to frustrated and stressed drivers who take chances to move ahead in this gridlock. You see them every day and you may be guilty of some or all of the following yourself:

  • exceeding the speed limit
  • constantly switching lanes to move ahead (and failing to use turn signals when doing so)
  • tailgating the slower vehicle in front of you
  • accelerating at an intersection when the light turns yellow (rather than slowing and coming to a safe stop before the light turns red)
  • running the red light to try to save some time in your commute.

If you also factor in the numerous thunderstorms that are a frequent occurrence in the central Florida area, this creates even further hazards to driving on local roads. Heavy showers cause low visibility for drivers with heavy rain and slick roads due to a combination of wet roads and oil buildup on road surfaces. Our advice to you if there is inclement weather outside then is give yourself more travel time to get to your destination, keep your headlights on, drive below the speed limit to give yourself ample time to stop due to traffic backup and make it safely to your destination. If you are unfortunately involved in an auto accident while driving in a rainstorm or thunderstorm in the central Florida area please call The Umansky Law Firm at 407-228-3838 so we can assist you and your family.
