Detroit’s Most Dangerous Intersections in 2023

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 2023 so local drivers can use extra caution when they’re traveling through these areas.

This annual list of most dangerous intersections is provided by our attorneys to help keep Michigan drivers safe.

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.
