While crashes can occur wherever vehicles converge, they are highly likely to take place at or near intersections. This is largely because intersections are sites of constantly changing traffic conditions, creating more possibilities for motorists to overlook something, make mistakes, etc.
In Texas, Houston reportedly has the highest number of dangerous intersections (when compared to every other city in the state), with more than 80 intersections in Houston being the site of at least one motor vehicle accident every month. Following Houston, San Antonio and Dallas round out the top three cities in Texas with the most dangerous intersections.
