The Florida Keys are an extensive group of islands off the southern coast of Florida. There are 1,700 islands—some inhabited, some not—that are divided into the Upper Keys, Middle Keys, and Lower Keys. The Upper Keys feature a portion of Biscayne National Park and the popular island of Key Largo. The Middle Keys include the Marathon Islands. The Lower Keys include the common vacation destination, Key West.
To travel among the Keys, residents and visitors must use U.S. Highway 1, also known as the Overseas Highway. U.S. 1 actually starts at the top of Maine, near the U.S. border with Canada. It runs all the way south, through Florida and all of the way to Key West. Whether you live in Miami or flew into the Miami International Airport, you could hop in a car or onto a motorcycle, hit Highway 1, and drive all the way to the southern most point of the U.S. in Key West. Included in the Overseas Highway is the Seven Mile Bridge. It is one of the longest bridges ever to be built, and it connects the Middle Keys to the Lower Keys.
The Overseas Highway and Seven Mile Bridge are central to transportation among the islands. They are also tourist destinations themselves. Many visitors to Florida will rent vehicles and drive down the highway, making stops and scenic areas. Residents also tend to bring out their motorcycles on beautiful days and take in the scenic drive. Unfortunately, with heavy traffic and issues like sun glare, Highway 1 and Seven Mile Bridge see many accidents. If you or a loved one are in a motorcycle crash on these roads, or anywhere else in the Keys, do not hesitate to call our motorcycle accident lawyers for the Florida Keys.Motorcycle Accidents in the Florida Keys
