Information About Collier County Roadway Safety

Collier County is located on the southwest tip of Florida's Gulf Coast. The county's major city is Naples. While Collier County is the second largest county in terms of land area, it is the 17th largest in terms of population with a population of a little more than 332,000. More than half of the county lies in the Big Cypress National Preserve bordering on the Everglades National Park.

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.
