5 worst intersections in South Florida

Driving in Miami can be frustrating and challenging. Pedestrians, bicyclists, rollerskaters - you name it, they’re there - not to mention the thousands of vehicles that pass through the city every day. You have probably heard about frequent accidents on the roads of Miami. But did you know that it’s not only Miami’s crowded roads which are unsafe but that South Florida driving can be dangerous in general? Studies have shown that there is a high rate of fatalities due to traffic collisions in Florida, one of the highest rate in the nation. South Florida’s roads also have some of the worst congestion and bottlenecks in the country, coming in at seventh worse in the US.


If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident, don’t wait a moment longer to visit our auto accident attorney in Plantation. We have qualified and experienced auto accident lawyers serving Plantation and the surrounding area. However, if you can avoid being injured in the first place, then you should! That’s why we are sharing a list of the top five most unsafe intersections in South Florida.

  1. Midtown Miami - NE Second Avenue and 36th Street

As you can see, there are 3 separate roads and a railroad track at this intersection. Both northbound and southbound traffic are often blocked because of the timing of the light. You can forget about getting through this intersection without frustration and extreme stress.

2. West Kendall: SW 117th Avenue and Kendall Drive

The problem with this intersection is the business in the area. To get to work every day through the district is mental anguish, say the locals.

3. Coconut Grove/Coral Gables. South Dixie Highway at every intersection south of I-95:

You cannot actually choose just one intersection along this highway because they are all bad. No matter the time of day, South Dixie is horrible, nothing short of constant stop-and-go.

4. Fort Lauderdale. A1A and Las Olas Boulevard

You can compare the A1A to a huge river of traffic and chaos, where pedestrians don't see any difference between the "Walk" and "Don't Walk" signals and often dart across the street willy-nilly. Besides them, you should be aware of careless cyclists and even wildlife. That is why the speed limit is 5 mph. It’s insane, but true.

5. South Beach. Alton Road and Dade Boulevard

This is the second-most dangerous intersection in Miami. Making it through Alton and Dade is a real challenge that not only will cause a lot of stress, but also results in accidents. There are 6 lanes going in every direction with road signage that can be tricky to understand.
