As an accident lawyer, my clients and friends are always asking me what roads are most dangerous and the worst place for car accidents. I’ve been addressing these questions by periodically posting about the worst intersections in high traffic areas throughout the state.
Today, we’ll talk about the worst intersections – as defined by the highest number of car accidents – in Monroe County, Michigan for 2013.
Our list comes from SEMCOG (Southeast Michigan Council of Governments), which provides data on high-frequency car accident locations for cities within seven counties in Southeast Michigan.
If you can, try and avoid these Monroe County intersections altogether. Or if they’re completely unavoidable, be aware of the extra traffic and increased risk of being involved in an auto accident.
Here are the Top 10 most dangerous intersections in Monroe County, Michigan:
- North Telegraph Road and Stewart Road, Frenchtown Township, 44 crashes
- Secor Road and Sterns Road, Bedford Township, 34 crashes
- Cole Road and North Monroe Street, Frenchtown Township, 31 crashes
- South Telegraph Road and West Dunbar Road, Monroe Township, 30 crashes
