Matthew Waring is a client-centered car accident lawyer serving Fort Lauderdale and Broward County.
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. 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.
Coastal Broward County
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. Visitors are heading to Ft. Lauderdale's or Lauderdale-by-the-Sea's famed beaches, or treating themselves to one of Wilton Manor's outstanding restaurants, cafes or bars. 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%.
Western Broward County
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.
According to the most recent Florida Highway Safety report compiled by the State, roughly 2.13% of people in Fort Lauderdale will be in car accidents this year and almost 60% of them may be injured.
