NBC Chicago: Group Identifies 10 Most Dangerous Chicago Intersections for Pedestrians

Three nearby intersections among 10 in Chicago have been considered most dangerous:
  • South Cottage Grove Avenue and East 79th Street in Grand Crossing/Chatham
  • South Ashland Avenue and West 63rd Street in West Englewood
  • South Martin Luther King Drive and East 63rd Street in Woodlawn
The 10 in the city and the other 10 in the suburbs were identified in this way:
Now [Active Transportation Alliance], which is known for its work on behalf of bicyclists, is warning Chicagoans about the most dangerous places to step into the street.

Active Trans analyzed crash data from the city and asked for feedback from the general public to arrive at their findings.
I should look to see what policies could we put in place to make these intersections safer for pedestrians.
