Rempel Insurance Brokers would like to remind you of the top five worst intersections for accidents over the past 10 years in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
Ranked #1 for worst intersection accidents was Leila Avenue and McPhillips Street. From 2005 – 2014, over 2,300 collisions happened at the intersection.
Other intersections to drive with caution are;
- Kenaston Boulevard at McGillivray Boulevard with 2,298;
- Kenaston at Grant Avenue with 1,747;
- Lagimodiere Boulevard at Regent Avenue with 1,700; and
- Bishop Grandin Boulevard at St. Mary’s Road with 1,556.
More than 50 per cent of the accidents at these intersections were rear-end collisions, according to MPI. To help make all high-collision intersections safer, a two-year pilot program has been launched. The program will include signs and police enforcement at three of the five spots: Kenaston at McGillivray, Bishop Grandin at St. Mary’s and Leila at McPhillips. Approximately $500,000 will be spent during the first year of the project for special enforcement to ensure people are driving with caution, following at the correct distance and to road conditions.
