No matter how safe we are on the roads, we are always at risk for accidents. With so many distractions in place, from texting to music, avoiding accidents altogether can be nearly impossible.
Here in Indianapolis, it’s no secret that our roads can get busy, and while every road is at risk, there are certain intersections that seem to pose a greater rate of accidents. An intersection becomes dangerous when there is a high volume of traffic, there is an issue with visibility, or there are multiple cross streets or entry points. But, even the quietest intersections can post a great risk. In fact, many of the most dangerous are actually low when it comes to vehicle traffic, but highly populated with bicycle and pedestrian traffic.
To ensure you avoid accidents on the roads, always practice safe driving. When you know your route incorporates one of these intersections, practice extra caution, slow down and get rid of any possible distractions before you begin driving.
In Indianapolis, the most dangerous intersections are:
- 38th Street and Guion Road
- Madison Avenue and Stop 11 Road
- 21st Street and Shadeland Avenue
- 38th Street and Franklin Road
- 86th Street and Keystone Crossing
- 38th Street and High School Road
All of these intersections are marked by heavy traffic, either pedestrian or vehicle, near popular attractions or locations, or include hard-to-read-signs or a lack of cross walks.
