What are the Most Dangerous Roads in Miami?
What makes a road dangerous? One factor is the number of car accidents that occur along specific sections of road.
Roads in South Florida that have the highest number of car crashes include:
- US Route 1 has the distinction of being the deadliest road in the country. It has the most fatal crashes of any highway in any state. The road changes names several times, with dangerous stretches along Biscayne Boulevard and South Dixie Highway.
- Interstate 95 is another dangerous and deadly road in Florida. It is 382 miles long from north to south, ending in Miami. The I-95 Express Toll and I-95 through North Miami can also be very dangerous to travel.
- NW 54th Street in Miami is less than two miles long but has a high fatality rate compared to other roads in the area.
Road design and maintenance can influence whether a road is dangerous for drivers. For example, blind curves, low shoulders, insufficient medians, and missing guardrails can contribute to the number of accidents along a stretch of road.
However, driver behavior is often to blame for accidents on dangerous roads. For example, speeding increases the risk of a traffic accident.
What are the Dangerous Intersections in Miami?
Traffic is heavy throughout the Miami area. As a result, many of the crashes that occur in Miami happen at intersections. The NHTSA has determined that about 40 percent of car accidents in the United States occur at intersections.
Some of the most dangerous intersections in Miami are:
- South Flamingo Road and Pines Blvd in Pembroke Pines
- Kendall Drive and West Kendall SW 17th Avenue in Miami
- Alton Road and Dade Boulevard in South Beach
- NE Sixth Street and NE First Avenue in Miami
- NW 8th Street and 36th Street in Doral
- The Brickell Avenue Bridge in Miami
Running red lights and failing to obey traffic signals are common causes of intersection accidents. In addition, distracted driving, drunk driving, and fatigued driving are also common causes of intersection accidents in South Florida.
Who is Responsible for Car Accidents Along Dangerous Roads and Intersections in Miami?
The person who caused your car accident can be held liable for your damages. In some cases, a car manufacturer could be liable if a defective car part contributed to the cause of a crash. Government entities could be liable if defective or dangerous road conditions caused the car crash. Trucking accidents often involve several defendants, including the truck driver, trucking company, and other parties.
Sorting out liability in a car accident case can be challenging. You should identify all the parties who could be liable for your damages, but you also need proof that each party contributed to the cause of the collision.
Our legal team has extensive experience investigating car crashes. We search for videos of the collision and eyewitnesses. In some cases, we may retain accident reconstructionists, engineers, and other experts who can assist us in proving how the car wreck occurred. Our law firm has the resources necessary to conduct a comprehensive accident investigation.
