Winter’s 6 most dangerous intersections in Alberta

Hazardous winter road conditions dramatically increase the risk of accidents. In Alberta, these are the top six dangerous intersections of the province.

With winter approaching, road conditions become more hazardous. Snow, ice, mud, slush etc. make driving more dangerous, and dramatically increase the risks of collisions and accidents on the road. In Alberta, there are some intersections that become particularly unsafe at this time of the year.

In their most recent report, the City of Calgary has published the list of its top accident locations. Leading the list of Calgary’s most dangerous intersections is Deerfoot Trail and 16 Avenue NE, followed by Deerfoot Trail and Glenmore Trail SE. These two intersections have also made it to Yahoo! Autos Canada’s top 5 most dangerous intersections.

The City of Edmonton similarly published in their annual report, the list of city’s top intersections with the highest numbers of collisions, otherwise known as “hot spots”. Ranking first is city’s Yellowhead Trail and 149 Street intersection, which recorded 83 collisions in 2013, and nearly the same number of car accidents in the year before that. The second most dangerous intersection of Edmonton is 107 Ave & 142 Street, which in 2013 recorded 81 car accidents. Next in the list are city’s two intersections which in 2013 had 64 car accidents: 23 Avenue & 91 Street, and 90 Avenue & 85 Street.
