Portland's Most Dangerous Intersections to Cross for Pedestrians and Bicyclists

The Portland Tribune recently reported on a phenomenon I've been tracking for months: The alarming upswing this year in pedestrian injuries and fatalities. The Portland Tribune reviewed the statistics and determined which intersections are the most dangerous for pedestrians to cross and bicyclists ride through.

Below, I've reproduced the statistics published by the Tribune, which rank the most dangerous intersections by number of car wrecks, crosswalk injuries and bike accidents:

Whether it's a crosswalk injury involving a pedestrian or a right turn accident involving a commuter on a bicycle, people or bikes on roads are no match for cars on roads. It will come as no surprise that the percentage of fatalities in car accidents involving pedestrians or bicycles is much higher than car accidents involving two cars.
