The Most Dangerous Intersections in Denver

The Most Dangerous Intersections in Denver

We’ve seen Denver grow and grow… and grow.  And more people means more traffic, which means more accidents. This is due to heavier traffic, combined with more pedestrians, cyclists, and scooters on the roads.

We found a list compiled by the Denver Police Department for Westword News, of the most dangerous intersections in the Denver metro area. We’re not telling you to stay clear of these intersections, but you should certainly use extra caution.  

As personal injury attorneys, we see a lot of car accident cases and we urge you to take care on the roads no matter where you are, but we think Westword’s article detailing the statistics in certain areas will be pretty eye-opening.

Without further ado, here’s the list of the most dangerous intersection in Denver from tenth to first:

Conclusion

As Denver grows, so will the rise in accidents. Between road work, commuters taking new routes due to traffic flow, pedestrians, and weather, dangerous intersections aren’t going anywhere anytime soon.  

Stay on high alert while driving, buckle up, and don’t be too aggressive or too passive.  And, please merge safely- let drivers in.
