If you have received a ticket in Collier County, you are probably pretty angry and frustrated but consider this:
- Most of Collier County's population is located in a relatively small area hugging the coastline. That means the roads are crowded.
- A long portion of I-75 travels through Collier County. I-75, within the border of Florida, is considered to be the 15th deadliest highway in the US based on the number of fatal crashes per mile.
- Most of Collier County is rural with mostly two lane country roads. The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) has found that two-lane country roads are the most dangerous highways in America.
- According to NHTSA, only 19% of the US population lives in rural areas but rural traffic fatalities accounted for 55% of the total fatalities in 2011.
- Collier County's population is growing fast but not as fast as its motor vehicle crash rate.
