Have you ever arrived at an intersection amidst a frenzied Michigan rush hour and wondered, “How in the world am I going to cross this?” Or have you seen car accident after car accident at certain intersections and thought, “This is dangerous. Why doesn’t someone do something about this?”
Well the accident lawyers of Michigan Auto Law have compiled an extensive list of the most dangerous intersections in Michigan, to protect drivers from such common — and preventable — accidents.
We’re going to present the information in the form of four blogs and many detailed photos. Each blog will highlight five of the most unsafe intersections in southeast Michigan, Detroit, Macomb County and Oakland County.
According to the Michigan State Police Office of Highway Safety Planning, there were 315,322 total car accidents in Michigan in 2006. Of those, there were 1,084 people killed, 81,942 people injured and 264,144 properties damaged.
Additionally, many crashes occurred at intersections in cities including Southfield, Farmington, Centerline, Sterling Heights, Warren, New Baltimore and Detroit.
Our law firm is highlighting the state’s perilous intersections so drivers can take more caution and hopefully avoid more car accidents. We also encourage Michigan government to take another look at these dangerous intersections and implement better safety measures.
