The Florida House has passed HB 719, a bill which repeals provisions relating to Florida Motor-Vehicle No-Fault Law. This is great news! Personal Injury Protection benefits are a required type of motor-vehicle insurance that provides minimal protection and has led to an incredible amount of litigation and confusion. Florida motor-vehicle laws must require mandatory bodily injury insurance for all registered vehicles. Bodily injury insurance pays for the damage to a person that a careless driver causes. Florida is one of the few states in the entire nation that do not require this vital insurance protection. Thankfully, the Florida House has passed a law that repeals this ancient and obsolete PIP coverage in favor of true financial responsibility. Drivers will now be required to carry $25,000 worth of insurance coverage per person and $50,000 per policy in order to register their car in Florida. This is positive and helps all Floridians. Finally!
According to a March 17, 2021 article in The Miami Herald by Linda Robertson, Florida is the most dangerous state in the country for pedestrians. It ranks #1 as the state where a person walking is most likely to be struck and killed by a motor-vehicle according to the “Dangerous by Design” report. This report from the National Non-Profit Smart Growth America and its National Complete Streets Coalition Program has identified Florida as the most dangerous state in the nation for people walking on streets.
