Dangerous Chico Intersections

Dangerous Chico Intersections

I’m Ed Smith, a Chico personal injury lawyer. Car accidents can occur in any part of the road, and it isn’t always possible to know where a crash might take place. However, there are always specific areas that have a higher chance of being the site of an accident than others. One of the most dangerous roadway areas in any city are intersections, which typically see a high rate of traumatic accidents. Chico is no exception and has intersections that have been the location of a high number of crashes. Residents of the area and those who frequently drive in the city may want to know about the most dangerous intersections in Chico.

What Makes Intersections Dangerous?
