Vancouver Fire and Rescue is cautioning people to stay safe while driving – but there are some intersections in Metro Vancouver that require extra caution. Here is ICBC’s list of the most dangerous intersections in the Metro area based on collision statistics from 2013 to 2014:
The Vancouver Police Department told Vancity Buzz in an email that many vehicle collision fatalities are pedestrians. While there have been 12 car accident deaths in the past year in Vancouver, nine of them were pedestrians.
That represents an increase in pedestrian fatalities from last year, which was seven out of 14 deaths.
