Dangerous Intersections

by Jeffery J. Kroll

As anyone knows that has driven in the Chicagoland area, Chicago is one of the most heavily traveled cities in the United States, if not the world. Its location in the heart of the United States makes it an attraction for not only all areas of the country but the millions of the people that live in the Chicagoland area and surrounding counties.

There are several intersections in the Chicagoland area that various groups have found to be more dangerous than others. Unfortunately, motor vehicle collisions at any intersection can cause injuries including traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, fractures, paralysis, and even death. According to various sources, some of the most dangerous intersections in the Chicagoland area are:

  1. Stoney Island Avenue and South Chicago Avenue
  2. Belmont and Kenzie – This intersection is considered dangerous as it is difficult to see as motor vehicles are entering and exiting below the Kennedy underpass.
  3. Cicero and I-55- The reason this intersection is so crowded is that it attracts motor vehicles for flights that run in and out of Midway International Airport.
  4. Irving Park, Cicero and Milwaukee Avenue – This intersection, commonly referred to as Six Corners, has numerous shopping centers and side streets. It is dangerous not only for driving but for pedestrians and bicyclists.
  5. North, Damen and Milwaukee – Traffic is almost always congested in three different directions at this Wicker Park intersection.
