In 2021, hit-and-runs were on the rise. This is an unfortunate statistic - and the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (the longest title for a DMV in all the states, perhaps), is on the alert for this happening. This could mean that we might be seeing more enforcement and harsher enforcement on hit and run events. February is Hit and Run awareness month. Keep this in mind if you get into an accident: and remember, it was an accident. Stick around and help out the other person. Fault and blame are secondary when it comes to health and safety.
"February is Hit-and-Run Awareness Month in Florida, and the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) and its division of the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) are leading the state’s “Stay at the Scene” campaign to prevent these crashes, reduce fatalities and injuries, and bring justice to families impacted by these crimes."
