Learn How Our Gainesville & Ocala Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help
North Central Florida communities are home to a high number of scooter and moped operators. Many residents have given in to the temptation to purchase a much smaller motor vehicle in the midst of high gas prices. People utilizing these zippy little rides are able to avoid packed automobile parking lots and congested traffic. However, these are just the locations where a scooter accident can take place.
Scooter Safety Issues
Though using scooters and mopeds as a primary mode of transportation can be cheap and convenient, these lighter, more open-air mounts are not always as safe as vehicles that keep drivers contained. When an accident invokes a larger, heavier vehicle, the potential for injury and the severity of injuries sustained increase greatly. Therefore, the danger of a scooter or moped accident is an ever-present reality in North Central Florida.
