The Deadly Side Of Orlando's Growth
Orlando and Orange County had more fatal traffic accidents per person last year than any other major urban area in the country, according to a just-released report from a highway interest group. TRIP researchers attribute the numbers to Orlando's explosive growth, its flood of tourists, good weather - it draws walkers and bikers - and the large number of older drivers. The region's roads, they say, simply haven't been designed to handle the crush of people now using them. "Roads are built for a certain level of traffic," said TRIP spokesman Paul Haaland. "And you're seeing exponential growth beyond that."
