The lawyers from Staver Accident Injury Lawyers, P.C. have helped many people recover compensation after sustaining injuries as a busy Illinois intersection, like this case in South Holland, Illinois.

As will probably not surprise many people, the busiest intersections in terms of the daily volume of cars passing through them are often also those at which the most accidents occur. This only makes sense, as busier intersections see a larger volume of cars and are also the places where the types of stop and go traffic that can further contribute to the development of motor vehicle collisions are most likely to take place. Recent news coverage shows this to be true in Illinois as in many other parts of America.

Recent Study in Central Illinois Shows More Traffic Accidents Occur at the Busiest Intersections

As an example of this phenomenon from the state of Illinois, a news website in Urbana-Champaign recently reported on the most dangerous intersections in the Urbana-Champaign area in central Illinois. The news article highlights the fact that the same intersection appears at the top of the list for both busiest intersections as well as the lost for intersections with the highest frequency of accident. The article’s author further noted that the frequency of accidents at this particular intersection actually increased by 30 percent between 2013 and 2015.

This Trend Applies Across Illinois

What this article highlights is that certain intersections are notorious for the number of accidents which occur at those intersections, often in multiples of the number of accidents which happen at your average intersection. For drivers, this highlights the importance of driving defensively and as cautiously as possible at whatever intersection in your city most closely resembles the intersections described in the new articles described above. It is these particular intersections in which it is absolutely essential that drivers be aware of their surroundings and drive as cautiously as possible at all times in order to minimize the chances of them getting into an accident.
