Help For Those Hurt on Interstate 71 In Ohio
At Rittgers Rittgers & Nakajima, our attorneys take on the injury problems facing our clients in Ohio and Kentucky. Since they are focused so much on the southwestern Ohio area, they have come to know a lot about the unique issues facing drivers in the area. One big hazard is Interstate 71.
I-71 is one of the main corridors running north and south through Ohio. As a result, it is one of the most highly trafficked highways in the state. However, the volume of traffic alone is not the only reason why so many motor vehicle accidents happen on I-71, though. The following factors also play a role:
- Only two lanes: I-71 has not grown as traffic has increased over the years. For the most part, it is only two lanes. This leads to substantial congestion and frequent stops. Distracted drivers may cause rear-end collisions when traffic grinds to a halt.
- Construction: On any given day, it seems as though there is work being done somewhere on I-71. This leads to further obstacles and slowdowns.
- Out-of-state drivers: Many of the vehicles on I-71 are driven by drivers from out of state. Truck drivers and vacationers en route to other states pass through constantly. Their lack of familiarity with the highway and its traffic patterns can lead to auto accidents.
