Ontario's Most Dangerous Intersections 2001

City Location State Farm Danger Index*
1. Mississauga Dundas Street East & Dixie Road 814
2. Mississauga Derry Road East & Goreway Drive 678
3. Brampton Queen Street East & Rutherford Road 508

* The State Farm Danger Index is determined by the number of crashes at various intersections, how many of those crashes involved injury and the severity of those crashes. It is adjusted to account for the percentage of vehicles insured by State Farm in areas where the intersections are located.

Mississauga Intersection Tops State Farm List of 
Most Dangerous in Ontario

Scarborough, Ontario, June 27, 2001 -- Mississauga intersections rank first and second on a new list of the three most dangerous intersections in Ontario compiled by State Farm Insurance.

No. 1 on the list is the junction of Dundas Street East and Dixie Road, followed by Derry Road East and Goreway Drive, second. Queen Street East and Rutherford Road in Brampton completes the list of three.

State Farm put together the new list based on crashes resulting in claims by its policyholders in 1999 and 2000.

Like the initial list, based on 1998 data, this one takes into account the number of crashes at various intersections and the percentage of vehicles insured by State Farm in areas where the intersections are located. The new list also takes into account how many crashes involved injury and the severity of those crashes.

State Farm, a longtime advocate of auto and highway safety, conducts these analyses to focus attention on a new way of evaluating intersection design by analyzing driver behavior and placing greater emphasis on safety-driven solutions to intersection problems. This year the company will make $5 million available to communities to study and, in some cases, make physical changes to enhance safety at specific intersections.

"Many intersection crashes could be prevented," said State Farm Regional Vice President Bob Cooke. "Just as we did two years ago, we'll offer communities with an intersection on our Ontario list up to $20,000 for an in-depth safety study that could lead to actual improvements."

Improvements have been made at one of the three intersections that appeared on that first Ontario list (Baseline Road and Merivale Road in Ottawa). A study has been completed at one of the other two.

"We believe virtually all intersections where many serious crashes occur can be made safer, sometimes through relatively minor, inexpensive adjustments," Cooke said. "We're ready to help communities make that happen, and we hope more local governments will start taking a look at how their own intersection safety can be improved."
