The Denver Police Department has compiled data on the ten metro-area intersections with the most accidents during the first two months-plus of 2017.

The statistics reveal that the most dangerous spots for Denver drivers right now aren't on surface streets, no matter how busy. Each entry in the top ten pertains to locations at or near exits on one of the two major interstates that slice through the area, I-25 and I-70.

The numbers are unnervingly high, particularly for the top accident site, Interstate 25 at 6th Avenue. Between January 1 and March 5 of this year, the time period from which the data was drawn, the crash rate was just shy of one per day there.

Continue to see all ten of the intersections, illustrated by screen captures from Google Maps. Bet you travel on one or more of these routes on a regular basis.
