West Palm Beach’s Dangerous Intersections
The following are the most dangerous intersections in West Palm Beach, Florida:
Okeechobee Boulevard and Military Trail
This intersection is consistently the most dangerous in West Palm Beach. Some argue the intersection of Okeechobee Boulevard and Military Trail is the most dangerous in all of Palm Beach County. In 2018, 123 crashes were recorded here.
This tends to be a traffic-heavy intersection every day, which accounts for its high accident rate. The more cars on the road, the greater the chances of an accident occurring.
North Congress Avenue and 45th Street
This intersection is the second most dangerous in West Palm Beach. It’s likely this intersection is accident-prone due to its proximity to major shopping centers.
The presence of multiple shopping centers can result in bumper-to-bumper traffic, which increases the risk of accidents occurring.
North Jog Road and Okeechobee Boulevard
This is another intersection near several stores, hotels, and other businesses. It attracts substantial traffic on a regular basis. It’s also the intersection of two major highways.
Thus, the rate of accidents here is fairly high. For example, in 2017, the intersection of North Jog Road and Okeechobee Boulevard was the site of 87 collisions.
Palm Beach Lakes and Village Boulevards
Along with being located in a popular shopping area in West Palm Beach, this intersection is located near several smaller roads and drives that may confuse those who are unfamiliar with the area.
North Robbins Drive and Palm Beach Lakes Boulevard
According to one recent report, this intersection ties with the intersection of Palm Beach Lakes and Village Boulevards as the intersection with the 14th highest rate of accidents in Palm Beach County. Like most of the other intersections on this list, it’s very close to several businesses.
It’s also near a major highway entrance and exit area. This naturally results in high levels of traffic, making accidents more likely to occur.
Palm Beach Lakes Boulevard and Executive Center Drive
The intersection of Palm Beach Lakes Boulevard and Executive Center Drive is one many travel through when arriving at or leaving Palm Beach Outlets. The popular shopping center attracts shoppers every day, resulting in a volume of traffic that increases the risk of accidents occurring.
Luckily, because drivers tend to be traveling at relatively low rates of speed in and around this intersection, the accidents that occur here may be less likely than others to cause significant harm to those involved in them. However, depending on a variety of factors, even a seemingly minor accident can leave a victim with significant injuries.
Okeechobee Boulevard and Wabasso Drive
This intersection is noteworthy because it’s near several large auto dealerships. It’s also near the southern endpoint of Palm Beach Lakes Boulevard. Accidents may occur here when drivers struggle to make the transition from Wabasso Drive to a busier road where they are likely to be traveling at a higher rate of speed.
Southern Boulevard and Lyons Road
Even intersections in suburban West Palm Beach can be relatively accident-prone under certain circumstances. For example, while the area directly south of this intersection is fairly suburban, the area directly north of it is home to a busy shopping center.
These conditions likely promote a higher-than-average rate of accidents.
Okeechobee Boulevard and Haverhill Road
Like the one above, this intersection is another in which a primarily suburban residential area abuts a shopping area. This puts drivers at a somewhat high risk of being involved in collisions.
Okeechobee Boulevard and the southbound Interstate 95 exit
Accident rates are often higher near major highway entrances and exits. These are high-traffic areas that many drivers are unable to avoid. If reaching your destination requires getting on or off the highway, finding a practical alternate route can be difficult.
