Today I wanted to share this new information on the most dangerous intersections in Washtenaw County for motor vehicle accidents with our clients and friends from the Ann Arbor and Washtenaw County area.
It’s good timing to post this list, as Michigan Auto Law recently relocated our own downtown Ann Arbor law office to 122 S. Main Street, Ste 220, in Ann Arbor. The office is right across the street from the Washtenaw County Courthouse, and is fully staffed by our two attorneys who live in Ann Arbor and spend a majority of their time in Washtenaw, Livingston and Jackson Counties.
Our list of the top 10 most dangerous Ann Arbor intersections comes from SEMCOG (Southeast Michigan Council of Governments), which provides this data on high-frequency car accident locations for cities within seven counties in Southeast Michigan.
It’s a good idea to keep this list in mind, either to try to avoid these intersections altogether or to be especially aware of the extra traffic and increased risk of being involved in a car accident when approaching these Washtenaw County intersections.
Avoid the following, if possible:
- Michigan Avenue at Platt Road, Pittsfield Charter Township, 43 traffic car accidents
- Carpenter Road at Michigan Avenue West, Ypsilanti, 41 traffic car accidents
- Carpenter Road at Packard Street, Pittsfield Charger Township, 39 traffic car accidents
- Carpenter Road at Washtenaw Avenue, Ann Arbor, 34 traffic car accidents
- Washtenaw Avenue at Golfside Drive, Carpenter, 33 traffic car accidents
- Hamilton Street North at Michigan Avenue West, Ypsilanti, 31 traffic car accidents
- Jackson Avenue at Maple Road South, Ann Arbor, 29 traffic car accidents
- Washtenaw Avenue at Huron Parkway South, Ann Arbor, 28 traffic car accidents
- Washtenaw Avenue at Hewitt Road North, Ypsilanti, 26 traffic car accidents
- Carpenter Road at Ellsworth Road East, Ypsilanti, 25 traffic car accidents
