Considering our personal injury law office is located along the I-595 corridor in western Broward County, running along the cities of Davie, Plantation and Weston, we know too well that car accidents have increased due to the ongoing construction. While the final results of the 595 construction will hopefully make life easier, for the next four years drivers will be faced with narrow lanes and ever changing traffic conditions, which certainly will cause more accidents and traffic problems.
According to statistics, car accidents along I-595 have increased more than 10 percent over the past few months, compared to the same time period last year. Thankfully, for those concerned about traffic delays, a Rapid Incident Scene Clearance program was implemented which provides bonuses for towing companies that are able to clear accidents in less than an hour and a half.
The only advise we can give to our fellow West Broward drivers is to be extra aware of your surroundings and be patient, we all have a long road ahead of us.
