* State Farm Danger Index

* The State Farm Danger Index is determined by the number of crashes at various intersections, how many of those crashes involved injury and the severity of those crashes. It is adjusted to account for the percentage of vehicles insured by State Farm in areas where the intersections are located.

So, why did my rates go up as I never drive through these intersections?

    The Piedmont / Monroe intersection is dangerous because idiots keeping turn left onto Monroe when northbound Piedmonters have a green light!

    If you ever hang out at the Caribou at that intersection, you’re bound to see an accident ever few hours.

    I would have thought Windy Hill Road and, my favorite, Ashford Dunwoody Road, would have appeared somewhere on that list. Also missing is the Dunwoody Place / Northridge Drive interesction, which is actually the 400 / Northridge interchange, and the worst designed interchange in the history of mankind.

    I’m surprised Piedmont and 10th didn’t make the list. One, hanging out at Outwrite, I saw three crashes and one near-crash in the space of two hours.

    And WORD on the complete awfulness of the 400 / Dunwoody Place / Northridge interchange.

    This data is State Farm only and I think that has something to do with it. I would have added a few other intersections to the list. Man oh man, there are some terrible intersection in Atlanta!! It makes you wonder why they were built the way they were. I guess it was before the traffic got so bad.

    Also, places like 316 south entering into the FAST LANE of I-85 south. You enter into traffic that is going 70-75 miles per hour 500 feet after two 316 lanes merging together. It’s crazy.

    Go Marietta, top of the list

    (even if Johnson Ferry & Roswell is technically Roswell)

    Agreed on the 400 / Northridge Drive interchange and 316 to 85.

    I’ve lived in Atlanta for two years and am constantly surprised I’ve it made it this long without an accident.
