Florida Fatal Car Accidents Decreased in 2008 – Jacksonville (Duval County) Followed Suit

Auto accident deaths in the State of Florida decreased each of the last three years. Last year, 2,983 persons died in car wrecks. In 2005, that number was 3,533.

Duval County had 120 traffic related deaths in 2008, down from 166 in 2007. Clay County and Nassau County also saw reductions in 2008; however, St. Johns County experienced an increase in vehicle accident deaths.

State and local officials attribute the decrease to increased enforcement and education regarding seatbelt usage, drunk driving and obeying traffic control devices.
