It is impossible to know whether or not you are sharing the road with safe drivers – but you can find out if the roads you drive every day are safe or not. Unfortunately, because of our unsafe area roads, you are at risk for a car accident every time you leave your driveway – regardless of how defensively you drive.
Green Bay and Appleton drivers, we want you to know where most of the accidents occur in our area.
The attorneys at Hupy and Abraham discovered the most high-traffic areas in Appleton, based on information from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, to give you an idea of where the risk of an accident might be lurking.
Poorly designed roads and intersections, poorly maintained roads, or roads overdue for improvements can all contribute to a serious car wreck. A fair number of the nearly 30,000 Wisconsin injury car accidents in 2009 were likely due to one of these roadway or intersection issues.
