dangerous intersections | Orlando Accident & Injury Blog
Orlando car accident lawyers caution readers to be extra wary while driving, walking or biking in Winter Springs for the next several months while city officials and road construction crews fix one of the most dangerous intersections in central Florida. Winter Springs Mayor Charles Lacey call the intersection of State Road 434 and Tuskawilla Road one of the most "confusing" and "awkward" intersections in the area and most local drivers would agree. This is especially true for anyone traveling south on Tuskawilla Road who needs to make a right turn to travel west on S.R. 434. For many years, they have been forced to travel down a side street and merge into S.R. 434, where drivers are traveling at highway speeds. It’s tricky and dangerous, but if drivers take the more direct route onto S.R. 434, they face getting ticket from Winter Springs Police officers.
In a move fully endorsed by Orlando personal injury attorneys and others throughout the area, Kissimmee has announced that the city will install red light cameras at ten of its busiest intersections this summer. The city will be the first city in Osceola County to install the life-saving cameras, and many hope that other Central Florida cities will also have red light cameras installed soon. The city plans to have the cameras in place and issuing tickets to red light runners by mid-August. The move follows other cities in Central Florida that have taken this step to protect everyone at busy intersections. Nearby Longwood is planning to install four cameras soon, Winter Park currently has two in place and Apopka has six. Orlando leads the way with 17 red light cameras located at some of the region’s busiest and most dangerous intersections.
