Broward County is located on the Southeast Atlantic Coast of Florida. It has a population of 1,815,137 people. The largest city is Fort Lauderdale. More than half of the county's land area is comprised of the Everglades Wildlife Management Area. The primary industry in Broward County is tourism.

If you have received a traffic ticket in this county, consider the facts below before getting frustrated.

  • In 2012, an average of one million tourists per month were added to the population of Broward County.
  • Of those tourists, 2.8 million were international tourists who may never have driven in the US before.
  • With the sparsely populated Everglades making up more than half of the county's land area, most of the county's almost two million people are crowded to within 20 miles of the coast.
  • Both Interstate 95 and 75 travel through Broward County. Based on the number of fatal crashes per mile, that portion of I-95 within Florida's borders is considered to be the deadliest highway in the US and I-75 (within Florida's border) is listed as the 15th deadliest highway in the US.
  • The intersection of Flamingo Rd. and Pines Blvd. was listed in a 2001 State Farm Insurance survey as the most dangerous intersection in America.
