Flagler County Roads

Additionally, the area has witnessed its population more than double in the last 20 years.
Your attorney will handle all communication with insurance agencies and other lawyers so you can focus on yourself and your family.
Between the passing visitor traffic and the population boom, it is easy to see why Flagler Beach and the greater county have suffered more car crashes in recent years. Three roadways are particularly dangerous.
State Road A1A
Taking a drive down A1A along the coast is a wonderful way to take in Flagler Beach. Besides enjoying the sights, sounds, and smells of the ocean, there are plenty of great local restaurants and shops. Sadly, over the years A1A has been the scene of serious car accidents, causing catastrophic injuries and fatalities.
State Road 100
Running east to west through Flagler County, State Road 100 is the main route connecting Flagler Beach to I-95, Bunnell, and other points to the west. Given that this is a major thoroughfare, it should be no surprise that auto accidents also occur here with some regularity. In February 2018, for example, two people were killed in a three-car collision when a car failed to stop.
In February 2017, five people lost their lives as their vehicle attempted to turn onto U.S. 1 from Old Dixie Highway by White Eagle. The intersection had been the scene of many accidents previously. Local residents claim that a better traffic design would make the area safer. Considering the speed at which drivers pass down U.S. 1, this intersection and others like it should be designed for motorists to safely merge into traffic.
