Take extra care merging onto Highway 1 or any of Metro Vancouver’s bridges.
That’s the message from the Insurance Bureau of B.C. as the agency releases its list of the worst intersections when it comes to car crashes.
ICBC said there was nearly one crash a day last year on the ramps for Willingdon Avenue and the Trans-Canada Highway. At 350 crashes in 2013, it was the worst intersection in the area.
Second on the list is Brunette Ave and its onramp to Hwy. 1, with 340 crashes.
Rounding out the top five are the Gaglardi Way off and onramps, with 250 crashes, and the Knight Street Bridge and the off and onramps on SE Marine Drive, with 230 fender benders.
Here’s a look at the other top crash spots:
- Langley: 264 St ramps & 56 Ave. ramps, 220
- Burnaby: Kensington Ave ramps & turning lane, 210
