Winter’s 6 most dangerous intersections in BC

Winter road conditions dramatically increase the risks of accidents. In British Columbia, these are the top six dangerous intersections in the province.

The cold-weather road conditions including snow, ice, mud, slush etc. make roads more hazardous. These conditions dramatically increase the risks of collisions and accidents, making driving during winter more challenging and dangerous.

Now the Insurance Bureau of British Columbia is suggesting that you especially take extra care merging on Trans-Canada Highway. According to the agency’s 2013 statistics on crashes and collisions, the on and off ramps of the Trans-Canada Highway are among the most dangerous intersections in British Columbia.

Leading the list of the most dangerous intersections in British Columbia is the Burnaby’s Willingdon Avenue and the Trans-Canada Highway intersection, with 346 crashes recorded only in 2013. Second on the list is Brunette Ave and the onramp to Trans-Canada Highway, an intersection which records a crash nearly every day (340 crashes in 2013).
