A list of the intersections with the most car accidents in West Michigan
In September, I posted the Top 10 Worst Intersections in West Michigan for Car Accidents in 2012. I received a lot of feedback from local residents, and I received so many Facebook posts and e-mails from people who live in Grand Rapids – where Michigan Auto Law has just opened a new long-term office in the beautiful McKay Tower downtown – that I decided to update my post.
Here are the worst intersections in the area, based upon the most recent accident statistics that have just been released for 2013.
Our list of the Top 10 Worst Intersections in Kent County is based upon highest number of motor vehicle accidents. The data comes from the Michigan State Police Traffic Crash Reporting System – High Crash Intersection Report.
If you can, try and avoid these intersections in West Michigan altogether. Or if they’re completely unavoidable, be aware of the extra traffic and increased risk of being involved in a crash.
