Which Intersections and Streets Do You Find Most Dangerous?

A handful of locations around the neighborhood have been the site of accidents in the past year.

Last week the Tri-State Transportation Campaign released its analysis of federal traffic fatality data with a fact sheet and a map that outlined when and where pedestrians were killed in Brooklyn. In total, 139 pedestrians died in the borough from 2008 to 2010.

's status as the third-most dangerous thoroughfare for crossing pedestrians has sparked many passionate responses from readers. But streets in Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill and Boerum Hill  have also been the site of accidents and near-misses over the past year, such as , , , among others.

Which streets and intersections do you think deserve the city's attention? Tell us in the comments section below.

Fact sheet needs to include include hit by vehicle-not just fatalities. Sometimes it is worse.

I love the Greenway, but getting to and from it can feel like taking my life (and my slow moving elderly dog's life) in my hands. The intersection at Columbia and Degraw is awful - trucks and cars come barreling full-speed around that corner no matter what the traffic light reads. It is scary. And then, the other side, at Columbia and Atlantic - well, the bike lane is great, but to try crossing over Columbia or Altantic at that intersection is nuts! I was trying to cross yesterday from the bike lane, with a walk sign, and the turning traffic just never let up. I couldn't cross.

I think one of most dangerous is intersection of Clinton and Atlantic. Both for bikes and pedestrian.

Agreed, Columbia and Atlantic (including BQE ramps) is horrible, designed for an entirely different traffic pattern. I go out of my way to avoid it, which is usually no big deal on a bicycle, but is a big deal as a pedestrian.
