RV and Motorhome Accidents
Florida is a top vacation destination for RVs and motorhomes. Sometimes those RVs even function as second homes for our resident “snowbirds”. Either way, the state draws a lot of these large vehicles to our roadways every year. Coupled with clogged highways, lots of pedestrian traffic, and an unfamiliarity with driving the vehicle, RV and motorhome accidents are all too common.
Typical RV Or Motorhome Accidents
Driver error accounts for a majority of RV and motorhome accidents. Some of the most common RV-related accidents include:
- Sideswiping cars while driving and/or changing lanes.
- Rear-ending other vehicles due to a misjudgment of stopping distance.
- Hitting pedestrians when negotiating or making a too-tight turn.
- Property damage due to unsecured or improperly secured items on the roof or back of the motorhome.
- Crashing or driving off the road due to inability to control the vehicle.
Consider this: RV drivers are handling vehicles that are in some cases the size and weight of an 18-wheeler, without having to pass any sort of special licensing exam to drive one. It’s no wonder accidents happen!
