‘Most Dangerous' Intersection in San Diego Identified

A local law firm identified the most dangerous intersection in San Diego in a study based on data from the California Highway Patrol.

The study was released by Estey and Bomberger, a law firm with an office in San Diego, Los Angles, San Bernardino, Riverside and San Francisco.

Pala Mission Road at Pala Temecula Road, near State Route 76 ranked number 24 as one of the most dangerous intersections in California. It has a danger score of 100—calculated using a formula developed by Estey and Bomberger.

The study was derived from collision data from the Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System (SWITRS), collected in 2015.

According to Estey and Bomberger, they analyzed more than 435,000 crash records in California with data visualization company 1point21 Interactive. 

Two of the most dangerous intersections that had the most crashes are located in Los Angeles. The city also had the highest number of dangerous intersections—221 of its 444 intersections.
