New Smyrna Beach is an interesting town because it is both a laid back beach time and a lively beach location all at the same time. It’s beach areas have that small surfer town fill, yet when the sun goes down the streets really come to life. Flagler Ave, which can be considered the main center of the beach and party scene in New Smyrna Beach, is rarely empty. Even when it’s pouring down rain you will find people driving up and down the avenue. They might not be enjoying the beach, but they will be enjoying a burger and a drink at one of the several restaurants and taverns. We could go on and on about everything that is constantly going on around Flagler Avenue, but that isn’t really what we are worrying about today. The main thing we are focusing on are the problems all this traffic can cause.
While this is all makes for a fun time out on the town, it also opens up the way for automobile accidents. Not just on Flagler either, even though that is a busy area. Truthfully most of New Smyrna Beach can be a traffic filled mess in the right weather. When the sun is out, the sky blue, and the waves are running high, it’s not uncommon to see long trails of cars waiting at a stop light on State Route 44, which leads to the beach areas. SR 44 runs from DeLand, down past Walmart, between Publix and Winn-Dixie, and ends near the beach. It’s no wonder this road sees plenty of traffic, and it’s fair share of traffic accidents.
Believe us, there isn’t much worse than planning a day at the beach, just to have it ruined by something as small as a fender bender or as large as a full on collision. When the roads are full of cars and trucks, they tend to also be full of impatience and frustration. Drivers start taking every small chance they get to change lanes, zip across roads into turning lanes or try to get past a yellow light before it changes.
While they usually will make their goal, sometimes they take too big a risk and end up in a collision. Not only does this cause more traffic and potential injuries, the results could be far-reaching if the automobile accident is severe enough. No one thinks of the months of unemployment and recovery that might be involved if they misjudge that tiny opening.
