The number of traffic accidents and citations recorded in the past make certain intersections the most dangerous in Sarasota. This is why the city has installed red light cameras at these crossings in hopes of reducing red light running and traffic accidents in Sarasota. The following is a list of intersections equipped with cameras, making these locations some of the most dangerous intersections in Sarasota:

  • Lockwood Ridge Road and Fruitville Road
  • Tamiami Trail/U.S. 41 and Bee Ridge Road
  • Tuttle Avenue and Bahia Vista Street
  • Washington Boulevard/U.S. 301 and Fruitville Road
  • Fruitville Road and Tuttle Avenue
  • Tamiami Trail/U.S. 41 and University Parkway
  • Tamiami Trail/U.S. 41 and Bahia Vista Street
  • Washington Boulevard/U.S. 301 and 17th Street
  • Tamiami Trail/U.S. 41 and Siesta Drive
  • Beneva Road and Fruitville Road

There are other dangerous intersections throughout Sarasota where many accidents have occurred over the years. Some of these intersections that are not equipped with red light cameras include:

  • Clark and McIntosh Roads
  • 17th Street and Lockwood Ridge
  • Cattlemen and Wilkinson Roads
  • Bee Ridge and Beneva Roads
  • U.S. 41 and Laurel Road

Although officials have identified each of these intersections as a location of frequent accidents, Sarasota car accidents can take place anywhere. Sadly, there is no safe spot on the road because you never know when another driver is going to be distracted at the wheel, driving intoxicated, speeding, driving fatigued, or participating in unsafe driving habits. Although it is a great idea to be cautious and pay extra attention at the intersections listed in this article, our Sarasota accident attorneys urge drivers to pay attention to the road and their driving at all times and at all intersections to avoid crashes.

Even if you were doing your part by being mindful on the road, another driver may not have.
