Fatal Motorcycle Crash On San Carlos Blvd., Reveals Dangers To Motorcyclists In Lee County

A tragic accident that occurred on San Carlos Boulevard in Fort Myers Sunday night has claimed the life of a motorcyclist and critically injured the passenger riding with him on his Harley Davidson motorcycle. The seriousness of this accident highlights the increasing dangers faced by motorcyclists traveling on roads in Lee County like San Carlos Boulevard.

Heavily trafficked San Carlos Boulevard is a major artery leading from mainland Fort Myers onto Ft Myers beach and has become notorious for its dangers to motorcyclists, and other motorists. As accident attorneys serving southwest Florida for over 30 years, we see have seend time and time again that it’s critical for motorcycle riders to be aware of the various risks that make this road particularly hazardous. Here are some critical dangers associated with San Carlos Boulevard and why it has become deadly for drivers in the Lee County area.

Because San Carlos Boulevard is a major thoroughfare connecting Fort Myers Beach and the mainland in Lee County it gets crowded with a chaotic mix of beachgoers, pedestrians, bicyclists, vacationers searching for parking spots, and commercial vehicles serving Estero Island. With so many driveways directly off San Carlos, this traffic can lead to drivers becoming frustrated, inattentive, and sometimes aggressive. As a result, motorcyclists must deal with the unexpected from other drivers much more often when traveling to Ft Myers Beach. This includes a potentially deadly mix of drivers making left turns in front of motorcyclists, drivers pulling out in front of motorcyclists, and distracted drivers rear-ending motorcyclists. Additionally, some accidents are caused when an unwary pedestrian or bicyclist crosses into the path of an oncoming motorcycle causing them to crash attempting to avoid a collision. we urge all motorcyclists to be patient, keep a watchful eye out for unexpected traffic, and be prepared to stop when driving in this busy corridor.
