MPI has released a list of the Top 5 Collision Intersections in Winnipeg. Leila & McPhillips topped the list with 2,326 collisions between 2005 and 2014.
- Leila/McPhillips: 2,326 collisions
- Kenaston/McGillivray: 2,298 collisions
- Kenaston/Grant: 1,747 collisions
- Lagimodiere/Regent: 1,700 collisions
- Bishop Grandin/St. Mary’s: 1,546 collisions
Motorists are reminded to take extra care at these intersections. The city will be launching a new awareness program that will leverage a mix of intersection signage, dedicated police enforcement and general public awareness at three of the five highest collision intersections in Winnipeg: Kenaston/McGillivray, Bishop Grandin/St. Mary’s and Leila/McPhillips.
Signage alerting motorists that they are approaching a high-collision intersection with a secondary message of ‘Don’t Follow Too Close’ will be conspicuously placed on all approaches at Kenaston/McGillivray and Leila/McPhillips for the duration of the two year pilot project.
Rear-end collisions accounted for more than 50 per cent of total collisions.
Drive safe Winnipeg!
