A few months ago, I wrote an article discussing Huntsville, infrastructure growth, and the need to focus on work crew safety. With a growing population, comes a need for greater infrastructure. That means more roads and better roads. You can read my prior road crew safety post here:

In past articles I’ve also discussed specific roads that need safety improvements. These include Highway 431 which has been included in listings of the most dangerous roads in the world. Yes, you heard that correctly. Highway 431 has been included in listings containing roads on the edges of cliffs! Why? This highway is especially dangerous because it passes through so many cities and towns with different traffic conditions. Think about all the cities and towns on Highway 431 as you leave Huntsville heading south. I frequently drive Highway 431 from my house in Huntsville to courtrooms in Guntersville, Gadsden and Anniston. It’s a dangerous highway simply because of the traffic it carries and the towns it serves.

Huntsville Accident & Injury AttorneysThe headline is far too common — Multiple Car Wrecks On Highway 53! Along this stretch of highway from Huntsville to Ardmore, it’s not unusual for paramedics and police to work multiple accidents at the same time. A WAFF story from April is a common example. The story reports three ongoing accidents along Highway 53 at different intersections.

This section of Highway from Ardmore into Huntsville suffers heavy congestion, especially at rush hours. And, it also has multiple dangerous intersections. A simple Google search for some of the intersections along Highway 53 will produce multiple reports of serious and fatal car accidents. The news channels regularly report fatal crashes at several of the intersections along Highway 53. I’ve written prior articles about the most dangerous intersections in Madison County. This stretch of roadway contains several of them.

For example, consider the major intersection at Highway 53 and Research Park Boulevard. Through the years, our lawyers have represented numerous people injured in wrecks at that intersection. You will find numerous and tragic news stories about fatal crashes at that intersection. I don’t suggest a Google search to highlight tragic events. Instead, I think it is important to recognize dangerous intersections so we can advocate for important safety improvements. When you see repeated tragedies at the same location, something should be done to fix it.
