Broward County Commits to Making Roads Safer for Non-Motorists in the Near Future

In a recent series of plans aptly called the “complete streets” laws, Broward County has committed to making its roads safer for pedestrians and bicyclists. Streets in South Florida county can expect to undergo a transformation in the coming months and years. Some of the proposed changes are:

  • More sidewalks and crosswalks: sidewalks are lacking across much of Broward County, and the “Complete Streets” laws will focus on making sure that the busiest and most pedestrian-dangerous roads have sidewalks and crosswalks.
  • More bike lanes: with the increase bicycle traffic in Broward County, the county’s lack of bike lanes has become troublesome. The new series of laws promises to address the lack of bike lanes.
  • The addition of “Parklets”: under the new laws, the county will remove parking spaces and add small areas with benches for people to sit and enjoy the beautiful weather and scenery South Florida is known for. This is an attempt to create a more peaceful and relaxing environment along Broward County roads.

The idea behind the “Complete Streets” laws is to create a more holistic approach when thinking about roadways; they are no longer just for motorists, but for everyone.

The Safety Impact of the “Complete Streets” Laws

Obviously, with the addition of more crosswalks, sidewalks, and bike lanes, Broward County will presumably become a safer place to walk and bike. This is very important for the growing cities in Broward County, because as the cities grow, people will rely less on driving their own vehicles and will rely more on walking and public transportation.

Broward County’s Poor Safety Record in the Past

Historically, Broward County does not have a stellar safety rating when it comes to auto-pedestrian and auto-bicyclist accidents. In fact, in the later part of last year and into this year, there were a rash of fatal hit and run accidents across Broward County. While the new laws can only do little to discourage drivers from fleeing after they cause an accident, hopefully the laws will decrease the overall amount of accidents in the first place.

  • SARA T.

    I was referred to Attorney Ralph Gonzalez to take care of injuries sustained from a car accident where I was rear ended. Not only did they make sure I got the care I needed, but were extremely professional and thorough in communication to explain the processes, follow ups, and expectations. Just closed the case after some time with a bigger settlement than expected, and I couldn't be happier with the treatment/services received from this office. Will 100% recommend to everyone. Thank you!
