ICBC has released their latest numbers for sites with the most vehicle crashes throughout the province – including those involving drivers on the Semiahmoo Peninsula.
The highest number of vehicle collisions in White Rock last year happened at 152 Street and 16 Avenue (Johnston Road and North Bluff Road), as reported by ICBC. There were 29 in total, a slight increase from 2020 when the same intersection had 26 crashes – the highest of that year also.
In fact, 152 Street and 16 Avenue has been the site of the most crashes in White Rock since 2017.
Still, the number of crashes in recent years is less than in 2017 to 2019, which saw more than 40 collisions in the intersection each year.
Thirteen of the crashes at the site resulted in injury or fatality, ranking first in that list also.
The second most common crash site in 2021 was at Martin Drive and 16 Avenue/North Bluff Road, with 15 crashes reported to ICBC.
There were 13 crashes at 148 Street/Oxford Street and North Bluff/16 Avenue. The same numbers were reported from 16 Avenue/North Bluff and 160 Street/Stayte Road.
Last of the top-five areas with the most crashes for 2021 was 156 Street/Finlay Street and North Bluff Road with 10 crashes.
In Surrey, none of the top 10 areas with the highest number of crashes was south of Highway 10, however there are a handful of locations which stand out in terms of the number of incidents in 2021.
The South Surrey intersection with the highest number of crashes last year was 24 Avenue at King George Boulevard, with 69 collisions.
Other area intersections with 50 or more collisions last year were 152 Street and the 32 Avenue diversion (63); Highway 99 and King George Boulevard (57); 152 Street and King George Boulevard (52); 176 Street (Highway 15) and 32 Avenue (50).
