Some of the most dangerous intersections in Nashville are listed below. Note: Interstates I-40 and I-24 have high collision and fatality rates.
The intersection danger exists usually from the following:
- Reduced visibility such as reduced site prior to a stop
- Having a shorter time window to stop related to traffic lights or space
- Reduced space to merge
- Large intersections with traffic lights requiring cars to travel long distances to make it safely through the intersection
Once you become familiar with these streets and cross-streets, use extra caution when approaching them. Approach the intersection with the knowledge of the risk and use defensive driving techniques to navigate through it. Another option is to avoid the intersection altogether. This may be the best choice during high traffic times or at night or other times with limited visibility.
