Combining information collected from the Texas Department of Transportation and a data visualization company called OnePoint21 Interactive, Brian White of Houston compiled a list of the 279 most dangerous Texas intersections. The three most dangerous are all located in one of Houston’s three loop roads, the Sam Houston Parkway.
The report raises questions about what causes so many crashes in the Houston area. White attributes it to what he calls a “traffic crisis”. According to the report, “the greater Houston area added nearly 500,000 people between 2012 and 2015” and road construction is seemingly endless. Between 2012 and 2015, car accidents that took place on intersections increased by 42%.
