The Worst Intersections in Fort Lauderdale

Fort Lauderdale is one of the best known cities in Florida. If you are not interested in dealing with the hustle and bustle of major metropolitan areas such as Miami, Tampa, or Jacksonville, then you will more than likely visit or live in our city to enjoy some of the best beaches, restaurants, and attractions that Florida has to offer. But the city of Fort Lauderdale has an estimated population of 180,072 residents, according to data gathered by the U.S. Census Bureau in 2017. This does not include the large amount of tourists that visit Fort Lauderdale each year. With such a large amount of people driving on a day to day basis, it is no surprise that we have a serious problem with car accidents in Broward county.

According to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, there were an estimated 41,755 car accidents with 245 fatalities and 25,361 injuries in Broward county in 2016. The number of accidents represents an 8.71% percent increase from the 38,409 accidents that occured in 2016. Moreover, the amount fatalities and injuries both increased by 10.86% and 8.04% respectively. Given this data, you, as driver, should be cognizant of some of the most dangerous intersections in the city.

3 of the Worst Intersections in Fort Lauderdale, FL

Some intersections in Fort Lauderdale are more dangerous than others. The Broward County Planning Organization in conjunction with the Broward County government analyzed crash data gathered in 2004 and compiled a list of the most dangerous intersections in our city based on the number of intersection car accidents that occured there that year.

1. Oakland Park Boulevard and Powerline Road

It is no surprise that the intersection of Oakland Park Boulevard and Powerline Road was the most dangerous intersection in the city in 2004 with approximately 65 accidents occurring at that intersection alone. The reason being, the intersection of Oakland Park Boulevard and Powerline Road is the last intersection before the ramp to Interstate 95. Moreover, the restaurants, houses, and access points to Little River all contribute an influx of traffic and thus, a large amount of car crashes.

2. Sunrise Boulevard and Northwest 31st Street

Attractions offer our city many benefits from a tourism perspective, but they can have some unintended consequences when it comes to auto accidents. The Swap Shop, which borders the intersection of Sunrise boulevard and Northwest 31st street, is no acception. Undoubtedly, the appeal of this attraction indirectly contributed to the 58 intersection accidents that occured the intersection of Sunrise boulevard and Northwest 31st street in 2004. So, make sure to drive with caution the next time you are bargain hunting at the Fort Lauderdale Swap Shop.

3. State Road 7 and Oakland Park Boulevard

There are definitely larger and more popular malls in the city of Fort Lauderdale, but the Lakes Mall attracts a host of different people, including both locals and visitors, but the large amount of customers that the mall attracts lead to 58 accidents at the intersection of State Road 7 and Oakland Park Boulevard, and the fact that two of the most dangerous intersections in the city are located along Oakland Park Boulevard should demonstrate why you should travel down this road with extreme caution. Ironically, the DMV is located near this intersection.

They handle all of the work of going through the claim process and making sure you get the medical treatment you need. Working with their lawyer was very helpful during this time. You won't regret it.

I must say that working with 1800-Injured was seamless during a stressful period. Both myself and my wife got into auto accidents within two months of each other and the service received ion both cases from this company is seciond to none. We felt completely at ease from the initial phone call, as they were recommended by someone else who too had a pleasant experience and at every stage in the process we were kept informed, the explanation of the process was thorough and the follow up was an indication that we were in great hands. Thank you for making what could have been a very unpleasant and stressful experience one that was seamless and stress free.

I used 1800injured after my accident and I'm really glad I did. They set me up with amazing professionals that settled my claim quickly and most importantly, hassle free. I don't know how people find the time to resolve a car accident any other way.

I was recently involved in a automotive accident. A car crashed into my car from behind and I was pushed forward and I hit the car in front of me. At that time I really didn't know what to do or who to call. I remember seeing an Ad for 1 800 Injured on my Instagram page. I called them and they were very informative and handled everything from A to Z. They set me up with a great lawyer and with the right doctors.

Hace unos cuantos meses tuve un accidente con mi novia en el highway, inmediatamente despues del accidente me comunique con 1-800 injured ya que un amigo me lo habia mencionado. Desde que hice la llamada estuvieron a mi disposicion 100%. Me mandaron a la clinica el mismo dia y me ofrecieron un driver de mi casa a la clinica ya que no podia manejar en esas circustancias. No solo eso, tambien me ofrecieron un exelente abogado que llego a mi casa el mismo dia del accidente. No puedo quejarme de su servicio, recibi un excelente tratamiento en la clinica durante 3 meses y en todas mis visitas el driver me llevaba y me traia a mi casa. Definitivamente ofrecen un excelente servicio y se preocupan por sus clientes. Si llegan a tener un accidente automovilistico no duden en contactar a 1-800 Injured!
