Many people do not realize that as much as it's illegal to speed on any road, it's also illegal to drive at a rate of speed that's dangerously slow for the current environment. People who engage in this conduct can be pulled over by police and given a ticket for this violation, as it clearly creates danger for everyone in the area at the time.
When someone is driving at a slow rate of speed to the point where it affects other motorists, those in other vehicles are forced to make a choice that may not lead to a positive conclusion. Any time a driver is forced to make a sudden decision that involves factors he or she is not used to analyzing, it can lead to mistakes. When these choices are made in a Miami highway environment, it can quickly lead to a chain reaction accident that results in disaster.
When someone is moving down the highway at a speed that's dangerously low, it often leads to rear-end collisions. The reason for this common result is obvious – people do not expect to come up on another driver so quickly when they are driving at a speed that's relatively close to the speed limit. Aside from rear-end collisions, side-swipe collisions are also common as a result of slow driving. If a motorist notices that someone is moving at a slow rate of speed and manages to veer out of the way of that vehicle before impacting it from behind, it can lead to a collision with a vehicle or vehicles in the next lane.
If you or someone you love has been harmed because of an accident caused by a slow driver, you may have legal rights and options at your disposal, as it's quite possible that this slow driver was negligent.
