In reviewing the locations on this list, you might begin to notice that many of these crash locations tend to be more in line with the high motor vehicle crash intersections we’ve shared on this blog throughout the year. Also, the majority of these car accidents are occurring in West Michigan. As most Michiganders know, the dynamics of lake affect snow create a significant additional hazard for many drivers in these areas.

Our accident attorneys wish you safe driving and urge you to use caution near these intersections, especially during inclement weather. For further protection, please take a look at our blog post with these great safe driving tips for the winter.

* Total car crashes that occurred in November through March, cumulative for the past five years, in snowy, slushy or icy conditions. An intersection accident occurs within 250 feet of any intersection
