“Confusing intersections” and overly complicated roadway designs are a traffic safety concern as they often lead to accidents with injuries. In the Chicago area there are many intersections which are considered due to various reasons to be “dangerous intersections” or intersections in which accidents frequently occur. A broad range of accident types can occur, including “T-bone crashes”, “rear-end collisions,” pedestrian accidents, and bicycle accidents. Often, a history of frequent accidents will lead to changes in the design of the roadways and intersections to reduce the possibility of additional accidents.
On this site various areas in which accidents causing injuries frequently occur have been discussed.
NBC Chicago ran a segment (video and article) on February 6, 2019 titled “Chicago-Area Drivers Navigate ‘Confusing’ Intersections.” The video shows various roadways and intersections in the Chicago area – including those in Chicago, Naperville, Lisle, and Clarendon Hills. As well, roundabouts are discussed in Lake County and other areas.
An excerpt from the article:
NBC 5 Investigates contacted transportation experts and dozens of area police departments to learn what they considered to be the potentially confusing new or old roadway designs.
Drivers on Milwaukee, Damen and North may see a tangled web of cars, trucks, bicycles and people as they converge at one of Chicago’s famous six-way interchanges.
Additional details can be seen in the article and video.
