Toronto ranks worst intersections for cyclists & drivers
Toronto has released an updated list of the worst intersections for cyclists and drivers in the city based on collision and accident data collected between 2009 and 2013. While there are problems with the statistics -- so many cycling related accidents go unreported -- the information remains useful if only as a warning to be extra cautious when navigating the intersections deemed most dangerous.
It's unsurprising that there's no crossover between the lists for cyclists and drivers. Cycling-related accidents tend to take place in denser parts of the city where more people ride bikes, whereas reported vehicular collisions are more common on roads with numerous lanes of traffic, typically outside of the downtown core. What isn't listed here, of course, is what intersections are most dangerous for pedestrians. You can find older stats related to this in our previous post on the worst intersections in Toronto.
