Methodology: Most Dangerous Intersections in New England

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

 

To rank the Most Dangerous Intersections in New England, GoLocal began with every state's listings of their Top 10 high-crash or safety risk intersections.

Those intersections include off-ramp and on-ramp areas on highways as well as traditional four-corner intersections in urban and suburban areas. GoLocal's researchers utilized accident data provided by each state's DOT from the most recent Federal Highway Safety Improvement Program 5 Percent Report, and assessed four factors: total number of accidents, fatalities, injuries, and property damage only.

Because different states chose different time spans in which to accumulate their data (3-5 years), GoLocal standardized the tallies to a 3-year sum.

GoLocal created a ranking formula that weighted each of the 3 categories of crashes based on the "danger" of the outcome (fatalities were weighted more than injuries, which were weighted more than property damage only), which yielded the final ranking order.
