Florida is one of the most visited states thanks to being home to theme parks, world-class beaches and ultimate outdoor experiences. Out-of-state visitors topped 126 million in 2018, marking the eighth year in a row for Florida tourism growth. 

The Sunshine State’s population is 21,299,325. Combine that with the growing tourism figures, and it’s no surprise that the roads are busy in Florida. Be aware of motor vehicle laws while driving and take safety precautions while driving in Florida. Always keep your auto insurance up-to-date and check your insurance policy to ensure you are adequately covered in case of an accident.
