Posted by Renée Yvonne Gardner | Feb 14, 2021 | 0 Comments

Do you know that there are parts of certain streets in San Jose where you're much more likely to get into a traffic accident?

The City of San Jose calls them “Priority Safety Corridors”.

Here are San Jose's 17 most dangerous roads, in alphabetical order, where you're most likely to be involved in an injury accident:

  1. Almaden Expressway
  2. Alum Rock Avenue and Santa Clara Street
  3. Blossom Hill Road
  4. Branham Lane
  5. Capitol Expressway
  6. Fruitdale Avenue
  7. Hillsdale Avenue
  8. Jackson Avenue
  9. King Road
  10. McKee Road
  11. McLaughlin Avenue
  12. Monterey Road/First Street/Market Street
  13. Saratoga Road
  14. Senter Road
  15. Story Road
  16. Tully Road
  17. White Road

The above San Jose roads represent just 3% of San Jose's approximate 2,400 miles of roads. They're a handful of San Jose's streets. Yet, a whopping 33% of traffic fatalities and 27% of severe injuries happen on these 17 streets!

 In a 2018 City of San Jose memo, the City of San Jose Director of Transportation wrote that the City of San Jose is working on making these roads safer.

According to a July 2019 report in the San Jose Mercury News, the intersection of McLaughlin Avenue and Story Road was the most dangerous intersection in San Jose between 2013 and 2017.
