Florida Highway Patrol is investigating the motorcycle accident.

Hopefully, both men have a full recovery. Florida roads, streets and highways are dangerous. People are traveling at high speeds and are not always the most attentive – drivers now face many more distractions because of cell phones. Drivers of automobiles and motorcycles need to stay attentive to their surroundings while driving. Also, although it is not a Florida Law to wear a helmet while driving or riding a motorcycle, helmets decrease the likelihood of death and serious personal injury by a dramatic percentage. The report did not say whether or not these men were wearing helmets.
