We Know Highways, Including US 127. That's Why We Are Your US 127 Lawyer.

If you or someone you know is involved in an accident on US 127, call The Abood Law Firm…we are your US 127 Lawyer. US 127 is dangerous, with the highest number of crashes involving injury of any stretch of highway in Ingham County. 

US-127 is a 215-mile highway and main north-south route through the center of Michigan’s lower peninsula. The highway’s southern terminus is in Ohio, just one mile from the Michigan border, and its northern terminus is the juncture with Interstate 75 in Crawford County, Michigan. The majority of US-127 is a four-lane, limited-access highway. 

Parts of US-127 accommodate over 20,000 vehicles per day (known as AADT), including stretches between Jackson and Lansing (a portion immediately south of Lansing sees 38,000 vehicles daily), where drivers are merging lanes to exit onto I-496 west, or they are staying on U.S.-127 
to continue south. With commuters going home from both the busy downtown area as well as the Michigan State University campus, traffic is slow, and accidents happen

The absence of acceleration lanes means that vehicles traveling at highway speeds must sometimes slow significantly to accommodate vehicles entering the highway at a slow acceleration rate. Because US-127 between Ithaca and St. Johns also lacks deceleration lanes, drivers exiting the highway along this stretch must slow down within an active lane of traffic to make a turn.
Drivers who are merging onto or crossing US-127 find it difficult to judge how far away oncoming cars are because of the high traffic speeds. This creates conditions that Doug Wright, Gratiot County Sheriff, describes as “so, so dangerous.” This represents a functional conflict between high speed through traffic and low speed local traffic. According to interviewees, local drivers get impatient and therefore take risks trying to cross the highway. Heavy tourism traffic on weekends exacerbates this problem, and during spring and fall harvest periods farmers struggle to cross with large equipment and are forced to wait for extended periods of time.
