The Datny Law Firm and Boca Raton Personal Injury Lawyer David B. Datny help victims of automobile accidents and car crashes in Boca Raton, East Boca Raton, Boca West and Downtown Boca recover physically and financially for their injuries, medical expenses, lost earnings, pain and suffering.
Unfortunately, automobile accidents occur quite frequently in Florida. In 2017, the most recent year for which crash statistics are available, The Florida Department of Highway Safety reported more than 400,000 motor vehicle accidents.
Approximately 27,273 of those car accidents occurred in Palm Beach County with 15,912 involving injury and 162 involving fatalities. Palm Beach County had the 5th most accidents in the State of Florida in 2017 behind Miami-Dade (69,986), Broward (41,337), Orange (31,004) and Hillsborough (27,909) counties.
The above statistics reveal what local drivers already know. That is, the roads and highways in and around Boca Raton and Palm Beach County are dangerous especially to other vehicles, motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians. In fact, Palm Beach County just released its annual list of most dangerous intersections with Glades Road and U.S. 441 (State Road 7) coming in at number 2. There were 118 recorded crashes at Glades/U.S. 441 in 2018.
Other dangerous intersections in Boca Raton that previously made Palm Beach County’s list include:
- Glades Road and Saint Andrews Boulevard
- Palmetto Park Road and Powerline Road; and
- Glades Road and Airport Road.
Palm Beach Metropolitan Planning Organization has also identified Federal Highway from Camino Real to Glades Road as a particularly dangerous stretch of road for pedestrians and bicyclists.
While the above roads and intersections have been recognized as dangerous, car, bike and pedestrian accidents also frequently occur on the roads listed below. Notwithstanding the above, it is quite apparent the most dangerous road in Boca Raton is Glades Road as it has consistently been on Palm Beach County’s list over the last few years.
