Despite a name that could be ominous to non-Florida residents, Alligator Alley is a popular 80-mile stretch of road for both tourists and residents traveling to Miami Beach and driving between Fort Lauderdale and Naples. Built in 1968, Alligator Alley is a toll road that runs through the everglades and is part of I-75.

Because the everglades stretch on both sides of Alligator Alley, the scenery is stunning. However, there are also few services along this part of the I-75 and as the name suggests, there is a significant amount of wildlife, which contributes to car accidents along this corridor. While the roadside is fenced off, car crashes still do happen. Here’s how to reduce your risk:

While many car crashes in Florida are caused by human error, the design of roadways also plays a significant role in preventing car accidents.

Unfortunately, pedestrians are particularly vulnerable, since they lack the protection afforded by a vehicle’s safety features. They are more likely to suffer fatalities and serious injuries.

Roundabouts are designed to reduce traffic congestion and make our roads safer. Florida has adopted them widely, so there are about 300 roundabouts on Florida roads and 20 on highways across the state. Unlike intersections, roundabouts don’t use road signs and full stops. Instead, drivers yield right of way, improving the flow of traffic.

Work zones include road work sites, construction job sites, and other temporary project areas where construction workers, contractors, and other professionals are building infrastructure or structures or are fixing them.

Work zones are a considerable risk for workers. In 2020 alone, 117 workers sustained fatal injuries on highway work sites. They also pose a risk of car accidents for those just passing through these areas.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
