Crossing an urban intersection is always dangerous, but some are more perilous than others. And a few are downright deadly.

Waze, the navigation app, provided us with a list of the most dangerous intersections for pedestrians and cyclists in three cities. Each city determined an intersection’s danger using its own metrics. Some focused on the total number of accidents, others weighted their figures by traffic and flow, and still others took into account the nature of the accidents.

Be careful when crossing these streets!
