The Dallas-Fort Worth area is growing furiously with over 100,000 people moving here each year. This has naturally increased the amount of people driving and the number of car accidents — especially at intersections. Almost half of wrecks happen there. Which ones in Fort Worth where are primary office is are the most likely to be the site of car and truck wrecks?
No, the answer is not all of them! But we already have 80,000 of them each year year in Tarrant and Dallas Counties. They were all preventable. Here is a photo from one of many crash cases we are currently handling where our client was rear ended by a man in the pickup truck running a light at an intersection and hitting other cars.
But first, people will have to stop texting or surfingthe net while driving, slow down, not drive while intoxicated, and obey traffic laws.
Until those things happen, you can be safer if you know where the most dangerous intersections are so you can hopefully avoid them. While collisions are reported on the news constantly, you never think that you will be in one — until it happens.
The Safe Communities Coalition that I am a member of researched crash data and reported that these were the top five intersections last year:
- East Lancaster at Riverside
- 183 at 360
- I-20 at McCart
- East Lancaster at Sargent
- I-35 at Meacham
