A1A and Other Dangerous Areas For Motorcycles
A1A scenic highway, starting at the Volusia/Flagler County line and extending to the northern limits of Beverly Beach, provides 72 beautiful miles of roadway. This stretch of highway is ideal for motorcycle riders thanks to the beautiful scenery, but it also presents ample opportunity for high risk and danger. Other dangerous spots for motorcycles include:
This stretch along the eastern coast of Florida has been called one of the most dangerous highways in the country. Reports of accidents on this portion of I-95 rank among the highest in the nation, with as many as 18 fatalities in a one-year period. During that same timeframe, the total number of accidents in whole topped 1,700 and of that number, at least 500 resulted in an injury.
Palm Coast Parkway
Numerous accidents with catastrophic injuries have been reported along Palm Coast Parkway over the years, making it one of the more dangerous areas for motorcycle riders to operate.
Motorcycle riders are drawn to the beautiful scenery and balmy weather here but dangerous stretches on these popular roads can lead to serious accidents.
The dangers for motorcyclists in these areas are well-documented. A 2017 FlaglerLive.com report noted a “change in traffic patterns” may have caused a biker to jerk his motorcycle down. In that particular accident, there were no other motorists involved, and this fact clearly demonstrates the risk to bikers on certain stretches of road. Even when all safety precautions are taken, an accident can happen. When it does, the team at Chanfrau & Chanfrau is here to help.
Motorcycle accidents cause devastating and life-changing injuries. Let Chanfrau & Chanfrau fight for the compensation you deserve.
Dangers Unique to Motorcycle Riders
Any type of auto accident has the potential to cause devastating injuries. However, motorcycle riders face unique dangers, such as:
- The ability to drive safely in severe weather is greatly reduced on a motorcycle
- The safety provided by an enclosed car is lost when riding a bike
- Protective gear, such as helmets and heavy leather clothing, only provide so much protection when coming into contact with the pavement
- The safety standards for motorcycles are not as high as those set for cars and trucks
- Riders are not easily spotted by other motorists

When other factors such as weather and road conditions come into play, we consider all available sources of the accident.
