Few states in the country have as high a truck accident rate as does Florida. Every year, roughly 4,000 fatal and non-fatal truck accidents occur on Florida's highways, leaving thousands of innocent motorists injured or dead. Truck traffic is dense on cross-state routes such as Interstate 4 and Interstate 10, as well as on north-south routes such as Interstate 75 and Interstate 95.
