According to recent reports, 2016 has been a bad year for car accidents in Florida. In just the first nine months of the year, Florida saw 269,868 traffic crashes, with over 113,000 injuries and 2,040 fatalities. In Port St. Lucie, there were over 3,250 car accidents and 20 auto accident-related deaths.
Considering Florida’s population size, these auto accident numbers are noticeably high, which has led to concerns about how the rest of the year will shape up.
More in-depth statistics show that a large percentage of the accidents throughout St. Lucie occurred in broad daylight, with fewer than seven percent happening late at night, when the majority of fatal crashes tend to occur.
