A recent study reveals that Houston travelers may be exposed to some of the worst drivers in the State of Texas. This opinion stems from data collected on the number of accidents per intersection within the State. According to the data, 28 of the top 50 most dangerous intersections were located in Houston, Texas.
The reason for the increase in dangerous intersections in Houston is unknown. Some speculate that it is due to the rapid rise in population. Others believe that the removal of red light cameras has helped spike the statistics. Since their removal, Houston has led the nation in drivers running red lights.
San Antonio, Lubbock, and Fort Worth also have dangerous intersections within the top 50 in Texas. Some may argue that its not the intersections causing the accidents, but rather the drivers themselves who most commonly travel these areas. Regardless, it would be wise to be aware of the dangerous locations and exercise a little more caution while driving on these roads.
