Road Rants: Hillsborough County’s worst intersections for 2019

Traffic

TAMPA (WFLA) – Which intersections in Hillsborough County are more prone to accidents?

The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office’s monthly record of crashes reveals the top trouble spots, which tend to cluster in three areas: Riverview, the Waters Avenue corridor, and the Fletcher Avenue corridor.

Below are the Sheriff’s Office’s top-five crash locations per month, along with the number of crashes the agency responded to. The severity of each crash, along with the time of day, cause, and weather at the time is not included in HCSO’s count.

The Sheriff’s Office makes this information available on its website, allowing the user to determine the top 10, 25, 50, and 100 intersections for each month.

HCSO’s disclaimer with the crash data is that because information is considered ‘preliminary’ it’s not to be used for comparisons over time.
