Florida SR 76 Accident
SR 76 in Florida provides essential infrastructure for the state’s big cities, but this road can also become a site for serious and even fatal motor vehicle accidents, especially when drivers are not as focused or as sober as they should be while behind the wheel. The vast majority of wrecks on Highway 76 are the result of some form of negligence or recklessness, such as driving while intoxicated, speeding, fatigued driving, falling asleep at the wheel, and distracted driving. However, some accidents are caused by unsafe roadway conditions, such as improper road maintenance, defective road design, lack of barriers, signs, or signals, and other road dangers.
The standards for highway design and safety vary from state to state, but the basic duty to provide motorists and pedestrians with access to reasonably safe roadways applies throughout the nation. States can fulfill this duty by eliminating dangerous or hazardous conditions that present threats to the safety of people using the road.
