The intersection of Plymouth Avenue and Rodman Street in Fall River is number one on a new list of dangerous intersections in southeastern Massachusetts. According to the report, the intersection averages a crash every nine days.
The study was conducted by the Southeastern Regional Planning and Economic Development District. The data which was used was gathered from the Massachusetts Department of Transportation.
The report found that one of the more serious problems plaguing the area is red-light runners. The number of crashes caused by drivers running red lights more than doubled between 2006 and 2008.
The study also lists 99 other dangerous intersections throughout southeastern Massachusetts.
While some auto accidents are minor fender benders resulting in only minor property damage, many motor vehicle crashes are often serious injury accidents. Even though Massachusetts is a no-fault state and motorists–except for motorcyclists–are covered by their own Personal Injury Protection insurance, your medical costs may far exceed PIP’s policy limits as well as the limits of your own medical insurance coverage. PIP also will not cover your lost wages.
