Canada’s most dangerous intersection is in Vancouver

By Vancity Buzz Staff | 8:49 am PST, Wed January 16, 2013 | Speak Up

We all know that Vancouver has a dubious record when it comes to driving. The hills, constant rain in the fall and poorly lit crosswalks and traffic lines factor into it. So do poorly designed intersections.  However, a lot of it also has to do with the horrible driving in this town. So when Micheal Small of Yahoo! Autos compiled a list of Canada’s most dangerous intersections it should not come as a surprise that Vancouver came out on top.

    It seems the three notable Vancouver intersections aren’t just simple intersections but complicated Offramp/Onramp cocktails of danger…

    But Winnipeg and Montreal each have more in the top ten and Vancouver only has 3 in the top 20. Each of the major cities has roughly the same number of intersections on the list.

    Why didn’t Vancouver get all 20  on the list.  Maybe next year.
