Troup and Loop 323


 
 

This light is notorious for being blocked up during rush hour. The influx of commuters from Whitehouse to Tyler makes this a place to avoid around five o'clock, not to mention the large amount of incidents that seem to occur here regularly. Wide turns lead to misjudgment of timing, which in turn spells out wreck for many drivers who frequent this intersection.

Highway 271 and Loop 323

 
 

I have not been around this intersection too often, but I can see why it is number two on the list. A busy loop juxtaposed with a highway ridden with flying speedsters is a situation that screams out auto-disaster in the making.

Broadway and Loop 323

 
 

This is an intersection I am quite familiar with, dangerous at morning and rush hour. Many drivers run red lights making long turns, in hope of a last ditch effort to avoid being late to work - however, sometimes these last second decisions can have terrible consequences. When there is a wreck here, everything stops; it is practically the central hub of South Tyler.

Highway 69 North and Loop 323

 
 

This is also a risky intersection - Speedy traffic with a small window of opportunity to turn does not bode to turn out well. I cannot say from experience, but this split seems as it would be a very accident prone area.

Gentry and Martin Luther King Boulevard

 
 

This intersection definitely deserves a spot on the list. People come blasting down the boulevard onto Gentry, and with wide lanes to maneuver into you would figure that this place would not have a high incidence of wrecks. But it does, and I suppose that is just the way it is.
