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.

  1. Leila/McPhillips: 2,326 collisions
  2. Kenaston/McGillivray: 2,298 collisions
  3. Kenaston/Grant: 1,747 collisions
  4. Lagimodiere/Regent: 1,700 collisions
  5. 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!
