Flagler County's Population Boom and Busy Roads

boardwalk to the beach

Flagler County has its fair share of commuters traveling through the area. Many drivers making their way to other parts of northeastern Florida, such as Daytona Beach or Jacksonville, also travel through Flagler County. Additionally, the area has witnessed its population more than double in the last 20 years. At the law firm of Chanfrau & Chanfrau, our car accident lawyers represent residents, visitors, and travelers who have been injured in the area due to the negligence of other drivers.

Flagler County Roads

Between the passing visitor traffic and the rising population, it is easy to see why Flagler Beach and the greater county have seen more car crashes in recent years. Three roadways in particular have been the site of many car accidents over the years:


State Road A1A

beach drive

Taking a drive down A1A along the coast is a great 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. In addition, many pedestrians are injured or killed each year at mid-block crosswalks and crosswalks along the roadway.

State Road 100

four lane highway

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 accident when a car failed to stop. In addition, pedestrian traffic near the beach can contribute to accidents.

U.S. 1

intersection

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.

I would absolutely recommend Chanfrau & Chanfrau. After my car accident I had no clue where to begin. I went and met with attorney Willam Chanfrau Jr. and immediately knew I was in the best hands. He has a passion for what he does and it truly shows. He sincerely just wants to help get the best results possible for his clients and would not accept anything less! His paralegal Laura Brown was so helpful and such a sweetheart. She was there to guide me the whole way.
