Where are you most likely to get in a crash in Washington, D.C.?

If you live in Washington, D.C., and have recently been in a car accident, you may want to make sure that you don't run into problems again. A recent article described the most dangerous intersections in Washington, D.C., so you can avoid them if you need to. Of course, there are many factors that apply to car and truck accidents, but these are the locations most likely to cause problems.

The Department of Transportation released a major report on traffic accidents in Washington, D.C., between 2010 and 2012, allowing for the mapping of intersections where accidents were most likely to take place. There are 20 intersections that have been marked as the most dangerous in the area.

What was the number one most dangerous site in D.C.? New York Avenue and Bladensburg Road NE. According to the data, there were 226 accidents at the intersection between 2010 and 2012. New York Avenue just might be the main problem, because it is named more than any other road on the list. In fact, six of its intersections are listed for having a high number of crashes. Those crashes are not a high percentage compared to the through traffic, though.

Where is the most likely place to get in a car accident? Data shows that 14th and U Streets NW along with Wisconsin Avenue and M Street NW were both particularly dangerous. The worst place to be in relation to the place where the highest percentage of crashes compared to the number of people driving in the area was Southern Avenue. Three of its intersections made the top 20 list for the highest likelihood of getting into an accident.
