Vancouver's most dangerous intersections for pedestrians

Main and Hastings

This map created by BCweb showcases Vancouver’s most dangerous intersections for pedestrians. Vancouver’s most dangerous intersection award goes to Main & Hastings. This should not come as a surprise to anyone, hence why the city implemented the 30km speed limit. 

Last week was brutal for pedestrians in the lower mainland. One evening six individuals were struck, which prompted us to send a reminder message to Vancouver drivers and pedestrians.

Vancouver’s deadliest intersections:

1.  East Hastings Street & Main Street

  • 31 crashes involving pedestrians between 2007 and 2011.

2. Burrard Street & Davie Street

  • 20 crashes involving pedestrians between 2007 and 2011.
