Orlando’s busy streets and intersections are well-known to our car accident lawyers at Bogin, Munns & Munns. Many of our clients have been involved in crashes at these notorious spots. You might already have a few intersections in mind just by reading this. While driving on main roads and interstate highways is often challenging, navigating these intersections can be even more hazardous. Here’s a list of some of the most dangerous intersections in Orlando. Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below!

I-4 and 408 Interchange

Crossing over lanes should be straightforward, right? Unfortunately, the design of this interchange complicates things. Drivers coming from I-4W needing to get onto 408 must cross a lane typically packed with eastbound travelers. This congestion often leads to aggressive driving and risky maneuvers as people try to beat the light or oncoming traffic.

W. Sand Lake Road and Universal Boulevard

Tourists and numerous lanes make this intersection particularly perilous. With cars full of vacationers exiting theme parks and trying to decipher their GPS directions, chaos is almost inevitable. If you’re driving through this area, expect to be cut off by an unsuspecting minivan and stay alert to avoid accidents.

W. Par Street and Edgewater Drive

This intersection becomes especially dangerous when high school lets out. Streams of traffic, primarily driven by inexperienced teenagers, flood onto W. Par Street. Even seasoned drivers can struggle during rush hour, making the influx of high school drivers an even bigger concern.

Lake Underhill Road and S. Goldenrod Road

Short traffic lights at this intersection might seem efficient in theory, but in practice, they often lead to trouble. Drivers racing the yellow light frequently end up running the red, creating hazards for others. Additionally, these brief lights can leave vehicles stranded in the middle of the intersection.

Central Florida Parkway and John Young Parkway

High traffic volume alone makes this intersection dangerous, but other factors add to the risk. Merging is tricky on even the best roads, and here it’s a constant challenge. Near-misses are common as drivers navigate this intimidating intersection.

Curry Ford Road and Primrose Drive

The lack of a left-turn signal here is a significant problem. Drivers often inch into the intersection, hoping for a gap in traffic. This focus on finding an opening can lead to distraction and serious left-turn accidents.

Aloma Avenue and Semoran Boulevard

Merges immediately after the 4-way stop, slow lights, and heavy traffic make this intersection a disaster waiting to happen. Long wait times frustrate drivers, leading to rash decisions. Sideswipe crashes in the merging lanes and hurried left turns are frequent issues here.

Navigating Orlando’s roads requires vigilance, especially at these dangerous intersections. Stay cautious and drive defensively to avoid becoming another statistic.
