Super Bowl LIV is right around the corner, and football fans across the nation can expect epic fun and excitement as they descend on South Florida for the much-anticipated annual sporting event.
If you live in Miami, you already know how bad traffic can be on a regular basis. Now, add the traffic generated by the out-of-towners during the Super Bowl and the combination can be explosive. According to Florida Highway Safety & Motor Vehicles, there were over 32,000 crashes in Miami-Dade county in 2019, with nearly 16,000 resulting in injuries. The tens of thousands of football fans expected to visit South Florida for the big championship will mean more cars on the road, resulting not only in more traffic but also a higher probability for car accidents

The first hour immediately following the Super Bowl was the worst, with the accident rate jumping 70%.
