Freeway off and on ramps are magnets for crashes
ICBC has launched a new online crash map to help commuters know what intersections are most likely to be tied up by accidents.
The maps give viewers a visual of all the crash data ICBC has collected from 2007 to 2011, and in Langley, drivers must show care at freeway on and off ramps.
One place to avoid is the 232 Street off ramp. It appears more crashes have occurred there than on any other roadway in Langley from 2007 to 2011. A total of 842 crashes have occurred there. In 2011 alone, 188 accidents took place on that off ramp and 76 of those crashes involved injuries.
Off ramps are just bad spots in general in Langley. Second worse crash count is at the 200 Street off ramps, with 810 crashes, followed by the 264 Street on ramp, says ICBC.
The worst intersection in Langley is Fraser Highway and Langley Bypass, with 518 crashes followed by 200 Street and Langley Bypass and 200 St. and 64 Avenue.
