Detroit's Most Dangerous Intersections In 2022

Our Detroit car accident lawyers share the list of Detroit’s Top 10 most dangerous intersections based on Michigan State Police car accident reports for 2022 so local drivers can use extra caution when they’re traveling through these areas.

This annual list is provided by our attorneys to help keep Michigan drivers safe.

In 2022, nearly a third (29.2%) of all fatal motor vehicle crashes in Michigan occurred at intersections.

Our Detroit’s Most Dangerous Intersections list for 2022 reflects the latest car accident data available from 2022 on the top 10 intersections with the highest number of reported accidents. Our attorneys would like to thank the Michigan State Police Traffic Crash Reporting Unit for helping us by providing the car crash data that we use to identify these intersections. The underlying traffic accident data analysis is compiled using motor vehicle accident reports filed by local law enforcement and police departments throughout Michigan.
