UBER-ACCIDENT-LAWYER-SELF-DRIVING-CAR-PERAZZO-LAW-300x225MIAMI-As the Memorial Day weekend kicks off the summer driving season, there is a rise in road accidents, particularly posing a heightened risk for teenage drivers. According to the Centers for Disease Control, teenagers are three times more likely to be involved in fatal accidents compared to older drivers.

When a father’s  16-year-old daughter started driving, he took precautions by having a backup camera and parking sensors installed in her 2006 vehicle. This parent acknowledges the uncertainty and lack of experience that comes with being a first-year driver, making safety a top priority.

Jonathan Perazzo, otherwise known as JP, shares one of the reasons why you shouldn’t pay for a ticket issued for a moving violation. As a car accident lawyer that confronts insurance providers on a daily basis, JP knows that paying a ticket can increase your insurance premium, simply because it makes you a less safe driver to insure.

Tickets and Other Factors that Make your Insurance Premiums Rise


There are various reasons why individuals may lose control of their vehicles, including strokes, intoxication, and vehicle malfunctions. Each of these factors can significantly impact a driver’s ability to operate a vehicle safely.

  1. Strokes: Strokes occur when blood flow to the brain is interrupted, leading to the impairment of brain function. A stroke can affect a person’s motor skills, vision, coordination, and cognitive abilities, making it extremely dangerous to drive. If a stroke occurs while driving or just before getting behind the wheel, it can result in a sudden loss of control, putting the driver, passengers, and others on the road at risk.

The checkpoint will be set up on Friday evening at the Pelican Harbor Boat Ramp, specifically at 1265 NE 79th Street. It will run from 7 p.m. to midnight, aiming to prevent accidents and injuries caused by impaired driving. The Miami Police officers participating in the checkpoint will be vigilant in identifying and apprehending individuals who are driving under the influence. Additionally, they will issue tickets to those who are not wearing seat belts, as part of their zero-tolerance approach to traffic law violations.

This DUI checkpoint initiative aligns with several ongoing campaigns, including “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over,” “Let’s Eliminate Aggressive Driving,” and “Buckle Up Florida: Click It or Ticket.” Law enforcement officials emphasize the importance of prioritizing safety for all motorists on the road by refraining from driving under the influence and ensuring the usage of seat belts.

Miami-Insurance-Claim-Lawyer-300x201The Future of Space Travel Accident Litigation and Insurance Claims

The Florida Senate has given its approval to a measure that grants liability protection for suborbital space travel passengers and staff. This legislation aims to shield aerospace companies from civil lawsuits in case passengers are injured or killed during space travel. The recently approved SB 1318 would provide limited immunity from personal injury or wrongful death lawsuits if it passes the House and is signed into law by Governor Ron DeSantis. The intention behind this legislation is to attract aerospace companies and create job opportunities in Florida.

A professor of law and director of the Global Space Law Center at Cleveland State University College of Law explained that the purpose of this legislation is to attract suborbital space flight industry, not companies like SpaceX, which primarily focuses on orbital and lunar missions. He highlights that suborbital and orbital space travel are distinct, with SpaceX using more advanced and powerful rockets like the Starship.
