FHP hopes to Reverse Hit and Run Numbers Across the State
FLORIDA- Not accepting the responsibility can lead to serious penalties.
For the past two years the number of people killed from hit and run crashes have increased, a trend Florida highway troopers would like to see reversed.
Staying behind the wheel after the scene of a crash is a criminal felony, one that can land you up to 30 years behind bars, a ten-thousand dollar fine or both.
State troopers say that even in cases of a crash where there are no other drivers present, you are responsible for leaving contact info.
