Methodology – Rankings are based on accidents
Michigan Law analyzed the numbers and compiled the list based on Michigan State Police car accident reports for 2021, which is the latest data available. Data used by the Michigan State Police is aggregated from local law enforcement agencies throughout the State of Michigan.
The ranking of intersections is based on the number of accidents at that location, from most to least.
According to Michigan law websiteaccident data includes collisions that occurred within 200 feet of an intersection and any associated freeway on or off the ramps.
