The 10 Most Dangerous Missouri Intersections

State Farm recently released its list of Missouri’s most dangerous roadways.  Topping the list are roadways in St. Louis County and Springfield, Missouri, featuring dangerous stoplights and hard-to-navigate-turns.

The 10 most dangerous Missouri Intersections:

  1. Gravois & Lindbergh Boulevard (Sunset Hills)

The Sunset Hills area has been granted $20,000 to perform a study of the intersection at Gravois and Lindbergh Boulevard, but so far, no results have been released.  While these roadways are being monitored, and ideas are circulating of how crashes here can be reduced, it is nonetheless important for drivers to be cautious on these roadways.
