Research suggests that drivers were more likely to have a crash in the Moorland Road/Rock Ridge roundabout last year than at any other intersection in New Berlin.
The intersection had the highest crash rate among the top 25 New Berlin intersections. The roundabout at Moorland Road and Interstate 43 had the third highest crash rate.
Any intersection with a crash rate more than 1 per 1 million vehicles should be looked at for safety improvements, according to city officials.
The Moorland Road/Rock Ridge had an accident rate of 2.08 per 1 million vehicles and the Moorland/I-43 intersection had a rate of 1.43 per 1 million vehicles.*
The most dangerous intersection was Moorland Road and Greenfield Avenue which saw 30 crashes last year.
*Accidents reported to state which involve injuries or more than $1,000 in property damage.
