The Risks of Summer
Increased driving during this time of year increases the risk of encountering reckless or intoxicated drivers on the road. Personal watercraft are not as prevalent as conventional boats, but they actually have higher accident rates. Pools and jacuzzis can be inviting, but hazardous water conditions in them or unsupervised activity around them may present unanticipated dangers. Even in its fun amusement parks or resort areas, dangers can lurk, including from Florida’s share of dangerous land and sea creatures, from snakes to alligators.
Playing it Safe
