Most likely intersections for car accidents in Monroe County, MI

Want to know the most dangerous locations  in Monroe County? You may be surprised.

Today our attorneys are providing two lists of Monroe County intersections. The first has the locations where you’re most likely to be involved in a car accident. It’s based upon total numbers of motor vehicle crashes. These may be due to badly designed or very busy intersections, but often include a large number of low impact fender benders where fortunately, no one was injured.

The second is based on car accidents where an investigating police officer noted an injury (or fatality).

Both lists are based upon the latest crash data provided by the Traffic Crash Reporting Unit of the Michigan State Police. Our attorneys wish to thank the Michigan State Police for helping us share this information, so you can understand the areas where you need to take more caution – or possibly avoid entirely.
