Port Orange Intersections Are Dangerous But They May Become Safer Soon
According to a report by the River to Sea Transportation Planning Organization, the intersection of Dunlawton Avenue and South Nova Road in Port Orange saw more collisions than any other intersection in Volusia and Flagler counties between 2011 and 2015.
Local officials have suggested several solutions to alleviate traffic in Port Orange, including creating more thoroughfares that run east-to-west from the interstate to the beach, and installing more "smart" traffic signals at busy intersections. Until these ideas become reality, however, motorcycle riders will remain at a high risk of suffering personal injuries on Port Orange roads.
