4 of the Most Dangerous Intersections in Rockford

My Drivers Ed teacher Mr. Ludaking would sit on his desk and point, “it’s not you I’m worried about it’s everyone else”.

The corner of State and Main streets in Rockford.

I have a driving teenager and the other folks on the road scare the hell out of me. Defensive driving is the name of the game, especially at certain spots in Rockford.

I do this same thing I’m about to mention. There are certain places you drive all the time. So when you drive there, you almost feel like “I can do whatever I want” because you’ve been there before. Think about the intersection by your house that you drive every day. How many times have you done a rolling stop of not stop at all because well, you know that area so well.

That I think is part of the problem with these intersections. People get comfortable and go through the motions. So i asked Double T and Tina what they thought were the most dangerous:

  • State and Alpine
  • North Main Roundabout
  • Latham and 2
  • Perryville and State
