The Top 10 Most Dangerous Areas for Car Accidents in Toronto

In 2013, Toronto traffic fatalities hit an all-time high, reports the Toronto Sun. Intersections are one the most dangerous hot spots for car accidents. BlogTO writer Derek Flack compiled information from driver surveys, the Toronto Police Department, and his interview with Mike Brady, manager of traffic safety for Toronto Transportation Services. He presented his findings in a post, “The worst intersections in Toronto,” on BlogTO.

Most Dangerous Intersections in Toronto

Congestion, visibility issues, dangerous turns, high speeds and confusing road patterns all can contribute to accidents.Flack reports that 10 of the most dangerous intersections in Toronto include the following.

  • Bathurst and Lake Shore Ave. West.
  • Dupont, Annette and Dundas Streets.
  • Eglinton Ave. West and Allen Rd.
  • Dundas Ave. West, Kipling St. and Bloor St. West.
  • Dundas Ave. West and Roncesvalles.
  • St. Clair and Vaughan.
  • Spadina and Lake Shore.
  • Queen and Lansdowne/Jameson.
  • Leslie and Sheppard.
  • and, Victoria Park Ave and Consumers Rd.

Worst Areas for Serious Collisions

Toronto Transportation Services reports the most common areas for serious collisions from 2006 to 2008, which Flack reports in his blog post.

  • Eglinton Ave. E at Kennedy Rd.
  • Steeles Ave. W at Younge St.
  • Kennedy Rd. at Lawrence Ave E.
  • Don Mills Rd. at Sheppard Ave E.
  • Finch Ave. W at Jane St.

  • and, Kennedy Rd. at Steeles Rd.

Numerous factors affect the statistics and are meant for informative reasons only, not to provide a false sense of security in other areas. In their interview, Toronto Transportation Services Manager Brady cautioned Flack, “Whenever you have a collision, there are at least three factors at play. You have the road environment, the vehicles and the users, but it’s impossible to track all these variables with accuracy.”
