Stay safe[edit]

  • Driving -- Florida has "no fault" auto accident laws, which means you are responsible for up to $10,000 in damage to your car, even if you are not responsible for the accident. Make sure your rental car comes with collision insurance, or obtain separate insurance. Florida also has a slightly higher than average auto fatalities, so take extra care on the roads. The amount of traffic is high for a city of it's size.
