Fort Lauderdale Car Accident Attorney Matthew Waring Breaks Down Broward County Car Accidents
Traffic is growing in the Greater Fort Lauderdale area increasing the likelihood that at some point, you'll need to speak with a Fort Lauderdale car accident attorney.
Fort Lauderdale will become the size of Miami-Dade in roughly ten years according to some estimates. The amount of cars packing the highways each day is continuing to grow. The population of Florida grows by 900 people per day! Many of those people move to South Florida. I can't blame people who want to move here. I'm from North Florida originally so I'm also part of the population problem.
Traffic congestion raises accident risks for Broward County residents.
The congested East to West traffic on roads such as Broward Boulevard, Sunrise Boulevard and 5-95 means more accidents around Fort Lauderdale and greater Broward County. Continuing residential and commercial development throughout Broward County means that congestion will only get worse -- and so may Broward County car accidents.
Even though the Florida Department of Transportation has widened I-95 and the Turnpike, many roads are just simply clogged, and handling daily car loads far greater than these older roads should.
East Greater Fort Lauderdale Car Accidents
In Pompano Beach and Fort Lauderdale, high-rises are taking the place of smaller buildings or are undergoing extensive renovations.
Lane closures and detours are common, as is bumper-to-bumper traffic.
With the cooler breezes of November, the seaside towns of Deerfield Beach, Pompano Beach, Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, Fort Lauderdale, Dania Beach and Hollywood are bracing for the annual influx of visitors and tourists.
Broward County's visitors are here to have fun, and when they drive, it's not the same as local residents driving from work to home with a stop at their local Publix.
Tourists are unfamiliar with our area and may have also tossed back a few drinks. Too, more visitor driving is done at night, and nighttime driving has an increased accident rate of at least 400%.
Unfortunately, these factors together may increase the odds of needing a Fort Lauderdale auto accident attorney.
West Greater Fort Lauderdale Car Accidents
In Broward and Miami-Dade's western reaches, the area around Miami Lakes, Hialeah and Miramar is in the earliest stages of building the largest mall and theme park in America, the American Dream Miami.
The biggest-in-its-class megamall will overwhelm western roads, including the Turnpike, despite the new Turnpike interchange that will be part of the American Dream Miami's infrastructure.
Many parts of Davie, Plantation, Pembroke Pines, Miramar, Tamarac, Coconut Creek and Westin are already suffering from the effects of overbuilding and too many cars on the road, and the additional trips to reach the American Dream Miami by both visitors and tourist is almost unimaginable.
Unlike the North and South traffic, which is the beneficiary of frequent highway upgrades, the East to West traffic continues to get worse.
Hit and Run Accidents Continue to Plague Fort Lauderdale
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, there are about 25-40 hit and run accidents every day in Florida. Many of those accidents involve serious injury or even death.
If you have been involved in a hit and run accident, finding insurance coverage can be difficult. It is much easier if you have a lead on the hit and run driver such as a license plate. However, for many people - especially pedestrians or cyclists - finding leads is challenging. That's why it is up to all of us who live and drive in Fort Lauderdale to report hit and run drivers to local authorities.
At Waring Law, we are At War with Hit and Run Drivers.
