Spring break is a time of great revelry in many places and Tampa, Florida is a popular location for many from both in and out of state to visit. While the various weeks of spring break vary for tourists and locals, March and April tend to be the major times in which the excitement is in full swing. With more people on the roads and potential dangers arising from the partying, it is important to remember a few safety tips when on the roads during spring break.
If you are a local or visitor taking in the festivities of spring break in Tampa, it is important to be safe while driving. This means that texting friends to find the new place to be or driving home drunk after a big party is a very bad idea. Make any plans that you need to before you get on the road and never feel you have to drive home while intoxicated. If you can’t wait it out and don’t have a friend to be a designated driver, call for an Uber or other service.
If you are not taking part in spring break and are a local in the area, remember that not everyone will be following the advice stated above. Be extra careful on the roads, especially in areas known for partying, such as the beach and around bars, and always stay focused on the road. If the other driver is distracted or intoxicated, then it is safe for you to be extra aware.
Even if everyone follows all safety advice, accidents still do happen and when they do, we at the Franco Law Firm are here to help you get back on your feet by winning you your personal injury case. To learn more about us and our services, please call us at (813) 872-0929.
