Whether you are heading to work in the morning, coming home in the evening, or just out for a night on the town, driving around Boulder should not be inherently risky. However, there are certain intersections in our city that are more dangerous than others. While the city takes its time conducting studies and proposing possible solutions, many residents are seriously injured at these locations.

There are a number of dangerous intersections throughout Boulder, according to the Boulder Transportation Advisory Board. Different factors make these intersections more likely to host collisions, including the road design, number of lanes, design of bike lanes, and amount of pedestrian traffic in the area.
One of the Board’s findings is that six of the ten most dangerous intersections in the city are in close proximity to each other. You should be particularly careful when driving near:
- 30th St. and Pearl St.
- 30th St. and Arapahoe Ave.
- 30th St. and Baseline Road
- 30th St. and Colorado Ave.
- 28th St. and Colorado Ave.
- Regent Drive and Colorado Ave.
Four of the most dangerous intersections in Boulder are in a small area along 30th Street, and three are along Colorado Avenue. If you have been in a collision in this area, liability for the crash may be more complicated than you realize at first. The negligence of other drivers can certainly come into play, but other elements such as pedestrian behavior may also have caused the wreck.
Outside of Boulder itself, there are also unsafe roadways. In particular, the stretch of U.S. 287 that runs through Boulder County is particularly deadly. Over the past few years, there have been over a dozen deaths in the short, nine-mile stretch of highway between Lafayette and Longmont. The lack of a lane divider and the high speeds many drivers travel contribute to these serious accidents.
Whether certain streets are dangerous due to poor design, improper maintenance, or another factor, the consequences are often the same. These include things like:
Any vehicle collision can cause serious injuries to the people involved. The injuries a person will suffer depend on the type of accident, but may include:
- Broken bones
- Internal injuries to organs
- Soft tissue damage
- Neck and shoulder injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
