Last week, the Southeastern Regional Planning and Economic Development District (SRPEDD) released a report entitled “The Most Dangerous Crash Locations in Southeastern Massachusetts 2006-2008.” The list includes the locations with the highest number of pedestrian and bike crashes, road departure crashes, red light running accidents, and fatal collisions.
Topping the list is Plymouth Avenue and Rodman Street in Fall River, which reportedly had 125 crashes during 2006-2008. Intersections in Swansea and New Bedford also ranked high on the list with 114 and 85 accidents respectively. Fall River had the highest number of dangerous intersections with 16. Attleboro had 12 dangerous intersections on the list.
SRPEDD released the list to coincide with its Regional Transportation Plan, which is an analysis of existing and future needs of the regional transportation system.
