Minor fender-benders on Florida roads are often low key events. When the parties to the accidents are uninjured, they generally know that they should get out of traffic, speak to the other parties and exchange contact and insurance information so that they can have their vehicles repaired. Most people are willing to extend this courtesy to other drivers; some, however, choose to ignore their accident-related obligations and leave the scenes of their collisions.
